"Matthew has a Latin Soul and we love his playing so much that we want to take him back home to Cuba" Ibrahim Ferrer- The Original Buena Vista Social Club "Matthew has the fire of Flamenco, The passion of Django and the fire of Santana" Melbourne Guitar Festival "A True Artist" – Paco Pena Matthew Fagan is a guitarist blessed with great charisma. Everything he does on the instrument draws you into his world. He is a virtuoso player—…Particularly in his arrangements of Spanish and Irish material, there is a fullness and idiomatic quality to the workmanship that indicate superior musicianship. This is the sort of guitar [performance] that touches the sensibilities even of listeners to whom classical music is a quite alien experience. The playing is magnetic, and the repertoire is invigorating. Highly recommended.
