    Mark Butcher & Matt Taylor are enjoying performing their new acoustic duo show with a mix of material from each of their albums. These are two engaging and hugely talented musicians who’ll thoroughly entertain their audience with warmth and humour. Mark Butcher (SONGS FROM THE SUN HOUSE) by The Mark Butcher Band Mark Butcher is an excellent guitarist/singer/songwriter with his heart steeped in soul and blues. Whilst some may know that cricket was his first love, music remained his life-long passion and now that he’s retired from the game – he’s building his reputation as a fine performer. His warm, vibrant vocal tone is full of passion, whether he’s singing solo acoustic, pumping up the volume with his own band or guesting with others : including Bill Wyman, Albert Lee, Georgie Fame, Paul Carrack, Bernie Marsden, Kenney Jones, John Etheridge, Dave Lambert and Eddie Floyd. Mr Eric Clapton is a bit of a Mark Butcher fan : “Great stuff, especially your vocals!” Matt Taylor is guitarist of quality. He has been a friend and working partner of Mark’s for some time - producing Mark’s first album and together their voices and guitar playing make for a memorable evening of superb music. Matt has a solid pedigree and over the years has performed with Sam Brown, Boy George, Suggs, Mica Paris, Tony Christie, Paul Young, Joe Bonamassa, Rick Parfitt, Long John Baldry and others. .... Recent projects have included The Motives (Matt’s own band), The Snowy White Project, Jamie Cullum, Lemar and international tours with French super star Patricia Kaas. As Mark says “music is about making you feel good and I like stuff you can dance and cry to at the same time…!
