Matt is a student in sixth form who has been playing guitar for years, both solo and in bands. I have taken photographs of Matt performing before and he invited me to a festival yesterday where he would be performing solo. The venue was the Carling Intake Club in Mansfield, which apparently is the largest live music venue in Mansfield. Bands and performers were on two stages from 4pm but the start was delayed due to a football match on TV. While we waited, I suggested to Matt that we could take a few photos outside for promo images.
Matt played extremely well and it was obvious he was putting everything into his performance. It was also nice to see his family again, who are extremely friendly and provide the behind-the-scenes support for Matt.
