Cumbrian based musician Matt Cowe presents a new show featuring the music of 50’s American country guitar legend Chet Atkins.
Many musicians regard Chet Atkins as one of the greatest guitarists of all time and his musical impact was huge with stars like George Harrison and Mark Knopfler, citing him as a major influence. Chet pioneered a style of guitar playing where the guitar plays the bass, rhythm and melody all at the same time which dumbfounded his contemporaries and to this day is still considered a very difficult style to master. Matt has long been an aficionado of Chet’s music and has studied it closely for the past ten years. Matt is joined by superb local musicians, Jon Moore (guitar), Steve Simpson (double bass) and Jack Davies (drums). Matt has played at the RH once before, when he guested at the epic Tim Kliphuis concert, and Jon Moore will be remembered as leader of the gypsy swing band 'Hotcha', while Steve Simpson has featured with both Hotcha and Steve Andrews.
