Patsy Matheson & Becky Mills news

The last few months have been really busy – Becky Mills and me have been out on the road playing our guitars and singing a bit all over the UK. What fun we have had! We have performed in some fabulous places, met lots of wonderful people and caught up with loads of dear friends. Huge thanks to everybody who came along and heard us play, bought the CD, helped us with our gear, supplied us with sherry, fed us, put us on and put us up! You are all lovely.

We were lucky enough to have been joined on stage at a few of the shows by the amazing Finn McArdle (percussion) and Jonny Short (double bass). Here we are at Bristol Folk Festival doing a completely unplugged session in the temporarily relocated ‘shed’ for  songsfromtheshed.

Here’s our dates for  the rest of the year – bit more festivalling in June, July and August, and then in September, we are once again heading North for the very wonderful Lanark Music Connections Festival followed by a quick foray further North up to Glenross and Cromarty. Home again for Otley Folk Festival at the end of September.

I’m doing a few bits and bats solo (whilst Rebecca decorates her new house…), including a couple of dates opening for the very lovely Boo Hewerdine. Come! He’s ace.

We’re currently putting together another big UK tour for Spring 2013. Lots of dates in already and more going in every day. We will post updates later this year.

‘There’s an overcrowded market in the UK of female singer-songwriter-guitarists, but Patsy Matheson stands out for the quality of her singing and more importantly, her songwriting…her best songs are thoughtful, delicate and impressively original’ – Robin Denselow, The Guardian

And the Telegraph:

‘There is something of a light-voiced female John Martyn about Patsy Matheson’s singing on So The Same, an impressive and original track on her new album Stories of Angels & Guitars… her sensitive lyrics and strong singing just click.’ – Martin Chilton, The Telegraph
