The North Central Florida Blues Society is pleased to announce that Matt Schofield will play the High Dive in Downtown Gainesville on Sunday, September 22.
Already named one of the top ten British Blues guitarists of all time by Guitar & Bass Magazine, the 36-year-old Schofield is a rising star in the industry. He’s won the British Blues Award for Best Guitarist three years straight, and is one of only two living British artists in recording history to gain a maximum four-star rating from the Penguin Book of Blues Recordings. His major influences are Albert Collins, Albert King, and Robben Ford, but his style and approach is unique. He plays with an organ trio (Schofield on guitar and vocals playing with a drummer and organist), and is acclaimed for playing with intensity while also remaining melodic and technically fluid.
This show is one of only two dates Schofield will have in Florida this year before he visits the Northeastern United States and then tours Europe.
Local acoustic duo Middleground will open the show.
