Iain Matthews first gained attention as a founding member of and vocalist for the innovative Fairport Convention’s first three albums, changing the face of folk music in this country. He moved on to create Matthews’ Southern Comfort, exploring his interest in American music. They had a No 1 hit in the UK with Joni Mitchell’s Woodstock. Never one to stand still for very long Iain moved on during the 1970’s with another group, Plainsong an ensemble that allowed Iain to blossom as a songwriter and acoustic guitarist - supported by his ex-Fairport mates Sandy Denny and Richard Thompson both in the studio and in Richard’s case on tour. Between his own solo recording and various Plainsong line-ups Iain released ten albums to critical acclaim including another well known Top Ten US hit with the single, Shake It.
