Ivor Novello award-winning singer-songwriter Scott Matthews headlines The Castle in Wellingborough on Saturday.

Wolverhampton-born Scott released his debut album Passing Stranger in 2006.

The record contained an eclectic mix of musical styles and received airplay on BBC Radio 2 from the likes of Janice Long, Mark Radcliffe and Bob Harris.

In May 2007 Elusive, his first single from this album, won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically. Matthews has played a number of his own sell-out headline tours while also sharing the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters, Snow Patrol, Rufus Wainwright and Tori Amos.

Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant also made a rare guest appearance on his second album Elsewhere.

This intimate show will see Matthews playing songs from his previous three albums, along with tracks from his new studio album Home Part 1, which is due to be re-released in November.

Tickets cost £10 and are available by calling 01933 270 007 or online at www.thecastle.org.uk.
