Later that year in Portland, a seed was sown by the prolific modern bluesman Davy Knowles when he gave Matthews the opportunity to jam at a sound check for the “Band of Friends: A celebration of Rory Gallagher”- the legendary Irish blues rock guitarist and singer.
Knowles kindly handed his guitar, a replica of Rory Gallagher’s iconic ‘61 Fender Stratocaster to the then 15 year old, and Matthews sent musical sparks flying onstage with Rory’s former bandmates and world class rhythm section: Gerry McAvoy and Ted McKenna.
Thanks to Davy Knowles, the Band of Friends and the music of Rory Gallagher, Andrew Matthews since that night understands the essential elements of exciting and engaging live music.
Rory’s blues rock legacy will remain a musical spice and significant influence in his guitar work.
At age 18, Andrew Matthews is currently a student of virtuoso guitarist Jennifer Batten (veteran lead guitarist of multiple Michael Jackson and Jeff Beck world tours.) Andrew is also among the first of Batten’s students attending the new Guitar Cloud Symposium live online instruction.
