Matt Ford is widely regarded as the finest big band singer in the UK, performing for 5 years with the multi-award winning Syd Lawrence Orchestra. Matt makes regular appearances with many top orchestras such as the John Wilson Orchestra, the BBC Concert Orchestra and Big Band, and has sung at the BBC Proms on four occasions to date - just a few highlights in a hugely illustrious career.
So Steve Walker and his Big Swing Band are incredibly thrilled that Matt will be joining them as their special guest for their two concerts at the Riverhead Theatre, Louth on the 5th & 6th June.
The band will be playing some of Matt’s favourite songs from the Great American Songbook plus many more iconic vocal numbers from the great swing era.
These two concerts will surely be a highlight for all fans of great swing singing as Matt is surely one of the top masters of the style.
