The LA Daily News once described Matt Schofield using the following sentence. “In Schofield, the UK has produced the best Blues guitarist from any country in decades…head and shoulders above the herd”. Never has a few words been so accurate. Matt has justifiably been ranked alongside notable legendary players, including Peter Green and Eric Clapton – with a level of playing and talent that saw him inducted into the British Blues Hall of Fame.
In this episode, The Captain sits down with Matt to talk growing up in Manchester, musical inspirations, his career to date, and what he’s getting up to in the future. There’s even time for a quick rig tour and a demonstration of his truly mind-boggling guitar skills!
