One of the best contemporary blues guitarists in the world, Matt Schofield is set to play The Hamilton, Saturday, January 26, 2013 at 8:30PM. Doors open at 6:30PM. Schofield won the British Blues Awards Guitarist of the Year in 2010 and 2011. He is no stranger to the area playing The Western Maryland Blues Festival in Hagerstown, Maryland twice. Matt Schofield is a bright spot for blues guitar. He is definitely not a guitarist to miss.
Guitar and Bass Magazine already puts Matt Schofield among the top 10 British Blues guitarists of all time. Quite an accomplishment since Eric Clapton and Peter Green are on that same list. He has recorded four studio albums and released three live albums in his career since 2004. The future is bright for Schofield and one would expect him to produce more music and continue to tour for a long time. More information on Matt Schofield can be found at his website.
