Multi award-winning guitarist, singer/songwriter and British Blues Hall of Famer, Matt Schofield, returns to the UK with his "Return of the Trio Tour".
Dates include The Jazz Cafe, London (March 3), followed by dates at The Guildhall, Lichfield (March 6) and the Bristol Jazz Festival(March 8).
The three UK concerts follow Schofield's November 2014 UK tour which met with rave reviews, and will showcase tracks from his critically acclaimed fifth studio album, "Far As I Can See". The trio line-up features Matt Schofield (guitar vocals), Jonny Henderson (Hammond Organ and keyboards), and Evan Jenkins (drums).
Over the last decade Schofield has earned a formidable international reputation as one of the most innovative and revered contemporary blues inspired guitarists on the world stage today. "Schofield transcends comparisons, undeniably his own man with his own sound and style," says Guitar Magazine. "There isn't a better British blues guitarist playing currently."
