Mystery Musician of the Month-Matt Barnes

 ????????

Matt Barnes

 

If you’re walking down Boundary street past the Vulture street corner, you may be lucky enough to hear the bitter sweet, lonesome sounds of some “Paris, Texas” style, laid-back slide guitar, or some foot-stomping rumbly rock n’ roll riffs that give your step a bit of a lift as you’re crossing at the lights.

Yes Matt Barnes, street musician, has set up his pitch at his favourite spot outside the chemist. (Best acoustics for busking in West End, or so I’m told)

Following his musical dream for over fifteen years, Matt plays a diverse range of guitars and related instruments, as well as being a vocalist and occasional harmonica player. His love of the music of the American Deep South shines through in his playing, with nods to Blues, Funk and Gospel.

Currently when not found on his home turf he can be found wandering around Brisbane’s familiar busking locations entertaining the people. He has plans to launch projects teaching and recording in the near future.

A man who believes in his Art don’t miss his performance this

Sunday 23rd February, at 2pm,

at the Olde Croquet Club, 91 Cordelia Street West End,

on the edge of Musgrave Park.
