CHRIS Matthews and Glenn Musto will take their tour to Port Lincoln and Coffin Bay next month.
Two of Australia’s most respected and hard working musicians come together for one night of fantastic music, ripping yarns and simply, a really great time.
From Chris Matthews’ virtuoso guitar skills to Glenn Musto’s effortless pop sensibility, it’s a show that offers something very unique and special that people from all walks of life can enjoy.
Taking a pinch of folk, a decent sprinkling of country, generous proportions of good foot stompin’ rock and roll, a large spoonful of rollicking bar room roots, and some incendiary guitar work, Chris Matthews has become recognised as one of Australia’s finest musical talents.
His remarkable skills on six and 12 string guitars, banjo and lap steel have amazed audiences from Broome to Batemans Bay, and his live shows have become legendary for their astonishing guitar work, combined with intelligent song writing and entertaining off the cuff stage banter.
Armed with the aforementioned instruments, a stomp box to drive the beat home and an impassioned and solid voice that could only come from the land of Australia, he is one of those performers who once seen, is one you never forget.
Glenn Musto’s show has been described as complementing the pop sensibility of Crowded House with a hint of local grit and endearing acoustic interpretations of his adroit recording style.
And don’t forget his scrapbook, which he expertly uses to ask the audience to write lyrics for him, keeping them engaged all night. He has been a touring musician for 15 years (including a recent performance for Danish royalty!) and his songs have received strong airplay on radio including Triple J and Nova.
He has developed a bijou yet committed fan base through his authentic and connected songwriting, nurtured by a complicated upbringing in Australia’s remote western heartland and honed through some incredible musical experiences in many of the great and small patches of the planet.
Chris and Glenn will perform at the Grand Tasman Hotel on Saturday, November 2 and Oysterbeds Coffin Bay on Sunday, November 3 as part of their South Australia and Victoria tour.
