Matt Cowe plays Chet Atkins

Free Event

Cumbrian based guitarist Matt Cowe returns to Zeffirellis with another show featuring the music of American guitar legend Chet Atkins, playing classic country and swing tunes from the 50’s as well other tunes from Chet’s long career.

Chet Atkins’ music has a unique nostalgic charm, full of melody and virtuosic playing and this will be a rare opportunity to hear this style live. He will be recreating Chet’s retro sound with an authentic line up featuring local musicians Steve Simpson on double bass, Jack Davies on drums and Jon Moore on rhythm guitar.

Check out Matt playing at last year’s prestigious Chet Atkins’ Appreciation Society convention in Nashville here:
