TOM ATTAH & Mat Walklate – Live in Concert. Sunday 19th May – 6pm

TOM ATTAH 

Combining the raw power of Son House with the dense hypnotic rhythms of Howlin’ Wolf and the barrel-chested roar of the old blues shouters, Tom’s live shows take audiences on a journey from the Delta to the Download.

Dr Tom Attah is a practising musician, and Course Leader for BMus Popular Music Performance at Leeds Arts University. His Ph.D. was awarded by University of Salford. His research interests include the effects of technology on popular music, particularly blues music and blues culture.

Tom’s teaching and blues advocacy includes theatre and festival performances, workshops, seminars, lectures and recitals delivered to learning institutions, artistic communities and blues dance specialist events in the United Kingdom, mainland Europe, Russia, and the United States.

As a guitarist and singer, Tom performs solo, with an acoustic duo and as part of an electric band. Tom’s solo acoustic work includes his own original Blues compositions and has led to performances at major music festivals around Europe, including major stages at the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts, the Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival, and Blues Autour Du Zinc.

Tom’s original music commissions include composing and performing the music for the HandelHendrix permanent exhibition in Mayfair, London, and Tom’s multiple national radio appearances include performances and documentaries for BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 4, and Sky Arts.

How Long As It Been . . .

 

Mat Walklate – ‘A great legend in the blues music industry  who specialises in modern blues, has forged his own way in the genre with his virtuosic harmonica playing and soulful vocals.

Walklate’s music has a raw, genuine blues feel to it, but it also has contemporary, modern elements that give it a more modern edge. He has a great understanding of the blues, which is demonstrated by his ability to meld traditional blues with modern elements.


His ability to weave intricate melodies and soulful riffs on the harmonica is nothing short of astounding, taking listeners right into the heart of the blues. Mat Walklate is a force to be reckoned with in the music business.’ Vibrate.com
