A double bill of top quality music from two of the UK's best blues acts
MATT WOOSEY performing as a duo with Dave Small http://www.mattwoosey.co.uk/

Matt Woosey’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. His ability to combine originality with a broad musical knowledge has gained him praise from sources as varied as Paul Jones (BBC2), Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music).

Wildest Dreams is Matt’s most recent and seventh full length release since 2008. This album is similar to his previous material in that it contains a certain number of blues and/or blues influenced songs although the overall spectrum of his song writing is broader and more mature than before. Ranging from ethereal folk to Pink Floyd-esque vibes and from Rumours-era Fleetwood Mac to full-on blues riffage, Wildest Dreams takes Woosey fans and new listeners alike on a journey through the man’s soul and musical heritage. Six of the ten tracks are brand new compositions, one is a reworked band version of a previously released solo recording, two from a previous limited release EP and one a radio edit of the albums’ single “Exactly As We Please”.

RED BUTLER http://www.redbutlermusic.co.uk/
With a burning desire to entertain and pursue a serious music career, at the age of 18 Alex Butler decided to form a band. April 2012 saw the beginning of the blues/rock band Red Butler with Alex butler (guitar), Charlie Simpson (drums), Jane Pearce (vocals), and Steve Eveleigh (bass). July 2014 saw Mike Topp take over from Steve Eveleigh on bass.

Drawing upon influences from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Etta James, Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore, Free, King King, Santana and Derek Trucks, the band have developed their own style of writing and have begun producing thoughtful, light hearted and melodic compositions. The band have already been mentioned by the blues media (Alex for his subtlety, flair, passionate and accomplished playing, Jane for her soulful, vibrant and powerful voice, Steve for his fluid bass lines and Charlie for his driving rhythms) and their debut album Freedom Bound (released July 2014) saw the start of serious attention from the music industry - see 'reviews' section on website.
Red Butler has recently been voted BEST NEW ACT IN THE UK through the Blues Matters Magazine Writer's Poll.
