My name is Mat Walklate. I'm a professional musician and music teacher and this website will provide details of the many bands and musical ventures with which I am involved.

My main instrument is the harmonica. I play diatonic, chromatic and tremolo in all styles of music, but predominantly Blues and Irish traditional music.

I sing and play harp in a blues duo with Sicilian guitarist Paolo Fuschi www.walklateandfuschi.com and I play harp with Tom Attah & The Bad Man Clan

In Irish traditional / Bluegrass band The House Devils I sing and play harmonica, flute & uilleann pipes www.thehousedevils.co.uk

I teach harmonica privately, including via Skype and I have recently filmed two harmonica courses, available online Here
