UK and British Blues Award winning band Catfish have carved a reputation for themselves as an excellent live band with a phenomenal frontman in guitarist/vocalist Matt Long who plays with a real passion for the blues. Over 2 years they received 5 nominations in the British Blues Awards and have just been awarded a UK Blues Award as Blues Act of the Year (England). Both their albums have reached no 1 in the IBBA Blues Airplay Charts, and their album Broken Man was voted album of the year for 2017 by the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association. This year they have already played in Holland, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Rhodes and Spain and have a further three European tours already booked for 2019, along with an impressive set of UK dates all over the UK.
‘Catfish are one of the finest live bands in Britain today. The quality of musicianship is outstanding and in Matt Long, they have one of the greatest young guitarists on the scene today…’ Blues Matters Magazine August 2017.
