Guitarist and singer Phil Fernandez and his band play a mix of great foot tappin’ original blues – rock ‘n’ roll numbers and classic blues. The Paris based outfit is one of the best European blues festival bands and have also performed at festivals in the US (including the Memphis Blues Challenge) and Canada. Fernandez' guitar work pays credit to the time he has spent in the US playing with the likes of Luther Allison, Lucky Peterson, WC Clark & Billy Branch and playing alongside Texas legend Uncle John Turner (drummer with Johnny Winter & Lightnin' Hopkins), the Fab Thunderbirds bassist Preston Hubbard and sax virtuoso Sax Gordon.

Did he really tune his guitar at the cross-roads where Robert Johnson sold his soul to the Devil, then roam the wilderness for a thousand years playing only to the wind and rain?
All we know for sure is that with 20 years’ experience touring the pubs, clubs and festivals of England, the legendary hard rocking boogie blues guitarist Howlin’ Mat is set for his first appearance at KBC - he is here and he means business.
