Live Music – Chris Matthews
We’re excited to be welcoming Chris Matthews back to Mansfield once again on Friday 12th April.
A favourite at the Delatite Hotel if you haven’t yet heard him sing then you need to head along this time!
Hailing from Kununurra in North West WA, one of the most isolated, hottest and sparsely populated places in the world, Chris Matthews is one of our country’s most unique songwriters and performers, carrying on the ancient tradition of singing up country, the people, the places, spaces and everything else in-between. An astounding multi instrumentalist and jaw dropping live performer, 2017 has been an incredibly busy year for Matthews, with his 4th Album “Hell West And Crooked” released in March, an 8 month tour of Australia finished in May, major festival performances all over the country and about 9 days actually spent at home in the East Kimberley.
Matthews is known to many Australia wide as the resident musician of the stunning East Kimberley El Questro Wilderness Resort – yet Chris spends the remainder of the year playing every pub, club, and festival around Australia, and this year was invited to officially open up the Tamworth Country Music Festival on the enormous main stage in Bicentennial Park. He also graduated the 2017 CMAA Songwriting Academy, toured Tasmania and WA with 7 time Golden Guitar winner Luke O’Shea in February and May, and performed at the National Folk Festival, Airlie Beach Festival, Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival, Black Mountain Festival and the Kimberley Moon Experience to name just a few.
