The Broadway, Winchester

SO23 9GH

Winchester Guildhall are excited to welcome back the wonderful Scott Matthews after his special performance in November 2016.

Scott Matthews’ ground- breaking debut album, Passing Stranger earned him serious critical acclaim with its bold mix of folk, rock, blues and Eastern-inspired song-writing, and in 2007 his first single ‘Elusive’ won the Ivor Novello Award for ‘Best Song Musically and Lyrically’.

From here Scott went on to perform on a number of international sell-out tours with respected artists such as Bert Jansch, Robert Plant and Alison Kraus, Foo Fighters, Rufus Wainwright and Tori Amos.

5 albums in, Scott goes out on a UK tour in Spring 2018 which the Guildhall is proud to be part of. His vocal style has been much referenced in ethereal terms of "ghostly", "haunting", "eerie" and "hypnotic", so perhaps there is magic afoot. About his early start as a musician Scott says “Fundamentally, I’ve always been a guitar player since the age of eleven and it’s the only instrument I can hold confidently and assuredly and write songs with”. 

“I was closer to 20 before I started getting into the realms of acoustic guitar playing. I then discovered the open tuning approach to guitar playing through John Martyn, Bert Jansch, Nick Drake, Davy Graham and Joni Mitchell, which over night seemed to blow my whole creative world wide open.”

Doors open 7pm
