Iain Matthews with Ian Clayton: Thro' my eyes word

Iain Matthews with Ian Clayton: Thro' my eyes word

Details

In 1967, Iain Matthews was recruited as lead vocalist for folk-rock pioneers Fairport Convention before embarking on a hugely successful and prolific career as a solo artist and in the groups Matthews Southern Comfort and Plainsong, including a No. 1 hit single with ‘Woodstock’.

His critically acclaimed memoir Thro’ My Eyes was written in collaboration with author, broadcaster and storyteller Ian Clayton. In Autumn 2019, the two take to the road to bring the book to life with a new music and words show. Ian Clayton will read stories from the book interspersed with live songs from Iain Matthews. The show will follow the story of Iain’s life, from a Scunthorpe childhood obsessed with football and music, to thrusting himself into the heart of Carnaby Street in the swinging-sixties.

The show will be a highly entertaining and intimate occasion, rich in stories and wonderful live music, presenting the story of an artistic life through the eyes of one of our most enduring singer-songwriters.
