Catfish – Winner of the British Blues Awards Are Touring!

Catfish are a band that are renowned for the blues style and influence. Fronted by a relatively young 23 year old, Matt Long, the band have reached great success in only a few years. Both of their albums have reached number 1 in the IBBA Blues Airplay Charts.

See their music below:


‘Catfish are one of the finest live bands in Britain today. The quality of musicianship is outstanding and in Matt Long, they have one of the greatest young guitarists on the scene today…’ Blues Matters Magazine August 2017.

Now their on tour across the UK, playing intimate venues before heading overseas to showcase their talent elsewhere!

Tour Dates:

06 Jul – Marrs Bar, Worcester, United Kingdom
07 Jul – Flower Pot, Derby, United Kingdom
08 Jul – Linton Blues Festival, Linton, United Kingdom
14 Jul – The Bear, Luton, United Kingdom
20 Jul – Queens Park Arts Centre and the Limelight Theatre, Aylesbury, United Kingdom

Further showcasing their scope Catfish have been as one of 5 bands to compete in the UK Blues Challenge where the winner will be selected to represent the UK in the European Blues Challenge. This just further cements the raw talent that is being shown and presumably justifies why their album ‘Broken Man’ won album of the year by the Independent Blues Broadcasters in 2017. Just a year before this in 2016 Catfish won a British Blues award and then a year later in 2018 they won a UK Blues Award for Blues Act of the Year!


Will Catfish ever stop piling up these awards? Doesn’t look like it!
