A few words about Me

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 guitarist & singer Alex Haynes 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 write songs and compose music, including for TV, film etc.

Recently, with Alex Haynes, I composed and performed original music for the Sky One TV series, Intergalactic (airing 2021), and I played harmonica for 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown in Series19

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

There aren't many gigs at the moment, but I am playing with Tom Attah Sat 5th September, at The Blues Bar, Harrogate
