Matt back for blues showcase

Bendigo Weekly | Bendigo Weekly | 22-Jun-2017


Artists are preparing for the Bendigo Blues and Roots Music Festival’s winter showcase. 

This will be at the Golden Vine Hotel on Sunday, July 16 with performances from visiting and local artists alike.

Now in its seventh year, the Bendigo Blues and Roots Music Festival continues to go from strength to strength. 

For Melbourne-based singer-songwriter and guitarist Matt Katsis, who has played the past two festivals, the event has quickly become a highlight on his music calendar.

Katsis will be one of many artists to take to the stage at the Golden Vine from noon until 8pm.

The Winter Showcase is important in ensuring the not-for-profit festival continues to be the success it is, Katsis says.

Essentially a one-man band, Katsis plays a mix of blues, roots and folk music, making use of live looping and the percussive elements of the acoustic guitar to build up song forms, while also using a kick drum and tambourine.

Tickets to the Winter Showcase are available at the door on the day and are $15 for adults, $5 for under-18s (with under-12s free). Friends of the Festival (FOF Members) enter free – but an FOF card must be presented.
