Matt Woosey, the acclaimed singer-songwriter and highly-rated guitarist, will be treating local fans to a memorable performance when he appears at the Trent Navigation in Nottingham on Friday, September 12.

Matt is a certainly a force to be reckoned with in the acoustic, folk and blues scene and has been described as “completely convincing and a master at what he does - Matt is the real deal”, by Tom Robinson, an influential critic and presenter at BBC 6 Music.

When you have heard his voice, listened to his poetic lyrics and experienced his unique blend of sound, you will understand why this artist is getting rave reviews wherever he plays.

Matt’s refreshing musical song writing and playing style combines acoustic blues, folk and rock conveyed with an accomplished vocal delivery which has been defined as The WooseyBlues.

Matt’s songwriting focuses strongly on combining the meaning and message of the lyrics with the composition and atmosphere of the music. He wants people to absorb the words, the music and enjoy his songwriting.

His catalogue covers a wide spectrum delivering a powerful blend of tracks spanning seven albums such as beautifully melodic songs like Noah, moving to the folk styled Elsie May and through to the raunchy rock of Black Smoke Rising. His on-stage presence has to be seen, with such a strong singing voice that he barely needs any amplification making every gig a unique and entertaining experience.

The Navigation is located on Meadow Lane in Nottingham. Entry is free and Matt will be onstage from 9pm. For more, see
