MATT MIDGLEY

Matt Midgley is a Scottish solo-acoustic guitarist, singer and songwriter based in Oxfordshire. His technical percussive guitar skills and alternative folk style create an amazingly unique sound, topped with simple melodies, catchy hooks, and strong Scottish vocals.

After a hugely successful 2013 of touring, festival hopping, and collaborating with the likes of Mike Dawes and Thomas Leeb Matt is currently working on new material which he will be showcasing this Summer.

The list goes on... in short, I'm more familiar (and have more of my own arrangements) of 'modern' (90s, 00s) alternative and rock music, but am able and willing to learn a straight cover, or create an arrangement of more or less anything upon request.
