Last year’s Best Solo Artist Guide Award runner-up Hometown show returns to the Wedegwood Rooms in Southsea on Sunday.

The folk singer, whose real name is Matthew Harrison, comes back to play a gig at the Edge of the Wedge, having released his debut album with a packed launch show at the Wedgewood Rooms in September.

It was part of a triumphant 2011 for Matthew which saw him release the aptly-named Americana acoustic folk album This Side Of The Ocean, having recorded it in the US after an extensive tour there.

On returning home to Portsmouth, Matthew reached the final of The Cellars All About The Song contest and was a highlight at Southsea Fest last year.

Tickets cost £3 on the door from 8pm on Sunday.
