MATTHEWS SOUTHERN COMFORT

Iain Matthews is an English musician and songwriter. He was a singer with Fairport Convention before forming his own band, Matthews Southern Comfort, which had a UK number one in 1970 with a cover version of Joni Mitchell’s song "Woodstock"

Matthews was known in the 1960’s as Ian McDonald, then as Ian Matthews. In 1989, he reverted to the original spelling of his first name.

Influenced by both rock and roll and folk music, he has performed mainly as a solo act, although he was a member of Fairport Convention during the early period when they were heavily influenced by American folk rock. He later had a solo career and led the bands Plainsong, Hi-Fi, No Grey Faith, More Than a Song, and Matthews Southern Comfort.

MAGNA CARTA
Magna Carta was founded in 1969.

The band has seen a number of personnel changes, but the common factor has always been Chris Simpson.

Song writer, poet, acoustic guitar player and vocalist, he has been largely responsible for the bands’s unique sound, and has had uncanny success in gathering high quality musicians around him.

Arguably one of the greatest acoustic acts in the world, they have transcended the fluctuating fortunes of the music business to remain a superb concert and recording act, surviving for almost 50 years.

Simpson’s voice, like his songs, has been tried and tested by the road and his guitar playing goes from strength to strength, a style recently described as "one you could recognise from the other side of a football pitch".

The songs speak for themselves and come from the heart – for there is no other way.
