Catfish + support @ John Peel Centre

UK and British Blues Award winners Catfish have carved a reputation for themselves as an excellent live band with a phenomenal frontman in 23 year old guitarist/vocalist Matt Long who plays with a real passion for the blues.

In 2016 they won a British Blues Award and in 2018 won the UK Blues Award for Blues Act of the Year (England).

The band crashed onto the blues scene in January 2015, with their debut album ‘So Many Roads’ going straight in at no 1 in the IBBA blues airplay charts. Their EP, a tribute to BB King called ‘When BB Sings The Blues’, charted at no 5 in February 2016.

In January 2017 they released their much-anticipated second album ‘Broken Man’ which is almost entirely original material. ‘Broken Man’ also reached no 1 in the IBBA blues airplay charts in March 2017. It was voted album of the year for 2017 by the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association.

This is blues with a very broad brush – from epic prog anthems to stripped back piano ballads.

‘Catfish are one of the finest live bands in Britain today.  The quality of musicianship is outstanding and in Matt Long, they have one of the greatest young guitarists on the scene today…’ – Blues Matters Magazine August 2017

Their busy tour schedule includes confirmed European tours and an extensive list of UK festivals and blues club gigs all over the country. They are well under way with their new album of original material which they hope to release in early 2019.

Catfish are:

Matt Long – guitar and vocals
Paul Long – keyboards and vocals
Kevin Yates – drums
Adam Pyke – bass
