Jonny Henderson (keys/bass) and Evan Jenkins (drums) comprise the trio whose live shows lift Schofield to an even greater echelon than thought possible, as his authenticity, mastery of guitar, emotive vocals, and improvisational brilliance are brought to life within his innovative original compositions. 

Schofield is a bit of a musical chameleon who can do it all as a multi-award winning guitar virtuoso, singer, songwriter, producer and band leader, plus three time ‘British Blues Guitarist of the Year’ and ‘British Blues Album of the Year’ winner.

He was also the first guitarist inducted into the ‘British Blues Awards Hall of Fame’ with his fluid and melodic playing and iconic tone inspiring legions of guitarists, paired with a sought after line of signature instruments and equipment including a Two-Rock Matt Schofield amplifier.

“After more than 30 years of performing, and 20 years into his solo career, Schofield’s impact as one of the most influential and distinctive guitarists of his generation is unquestionable,” a press release read.  

Don’t miss your chance to see Matt Schofield perform live for the first time in Australian venues. 

As an added bonus, The Matt Schofield Trio have a 20th Anniversary album in the works – with the Australian tour being the debut of the new material being performed live.
