Presented by Whitstable Sessions Music Club

This spectacular band, represents both the past and the present, as Matthews cleverly reinvents some of the classic MSC songs, to accompany the new originals.

If it’s that vintage swooping pedal steel sound you’re after, this band may not be your cup of tea. But if you’re looking for an evening of pure, unadulterated, sonic bliss, Matthews Southern Comfort lives.

These days, most band ‘reunions’ take place because of the huge financial rewards available and occasionally, record company pressure. In the case of Matthews Southern Comfort, neither reason applies. MSC has been reborn simply because Matthews feels he didn’t quite get it right the first time.

The new MSC, a quartet, features an all Dutch lineup; renowned guitarist, songwriter, producer, Bart Jan Baartmans ; Keyboardist, Bart de Win, and singersongwriter Eric Devries.

In conceiving and assembling this unique group of spirited and likeminded players, Matthews has once again surpassed all expectations… soaring vocal harmonies instantly bring to mind the 60’s version of the band.

ART31

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
