Honest Man On Route 66 22/2/17


This week's guest on our Route 66 Track Of The Day is Matt Andersen - a Canadian guitarist and singer songwriter who has shared stages with Buddy Guy, Gregg Allman, Jonny Lang and the Tedeschi Trucks Band. He won the 2013 and 2016 European Blues Award for Best Solo/Acoustic Act, picked up three Maple Blues Awards in 2012 and nabbed the International Blues Challenge prize in Memphis in 2010. With over 10 million views on Youtube he’s certainly getting noticed for his unique live performances, which he’ll be bringing to the UK in May in support of his new album, 'Honest Man'. And talking of honest men - host Rory Auskerry also play classic tracks from David Lee Roth, The Spencer Davis Group, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, AC/DC, Eric Clapton and Johnny Copeland.
