Matthew's been performing overseas during the past few months. He was recently invited to join Dean Martin's daughter in the USA as a guest on her show celebrating the music of her father & Uncle Frank Sinatra, and was a featured artist on BBC Radio 4's 'Soul Music'. He's also been focusing on some new material and returns to Crazy Coqs with a selection of the songs that have inspired his love of music. There's also a new line-up featuring musical director Gabriel Mantell on piano, Nick Ereaut on double bass and a guest guitarist (to be announced).
As ever, vanKan seeks to tell the stories often written between the lines of the song and delves into the creations of Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and Burt Bacharach amongst others. He'll be including some more obscure covers from recent years and showcasing original work performed live for the very first time.
