WALKLATE & FUSCHI
Mat Walklate and Paolo Fuschi play a diverse, dynamic live set illustrating all shades of Blues and allowing each other’s instrumental, vocal and improvisational qualities to shine.
Each performance is rock-solid, yet full of inspiration and spontaneity. Mat and Paolo are an "Electric Blues Duo" as they use old tube amplifiers creating a rich tone that brings the listeners back to the very early days of the 1950’s Chicago Blues. Think of Muddy Waters plugging in his red Telecaster for the first time into an old tube amplifier and Little Walter blowing his harmonica through an old Fender Champ amplifier.
Living in Manchester and strongly influenced by its AfroCaribbean community, Mat and Paolo also pay homage to Ska, blending the uplifting rhythms of this genre with the spirit and sentiment of the Blues. The result is a magical performance that stands out for its intensity and energy.
