Local Artist Profiles

Velvet Green
Paul Matthews: Vocals / Acoustic Guitar
Sue Matthews: Vocals occasional percussion

Velvet Green are a Husband and Wife duo, who perform a mixture of their own self-penned songs, popular folk and new acoustic music.

Having watched his son Chris singing and playing in two bands, it was not long before Paul dusted off his Bass guitar and joined local band ‘The Journey’ playing 60’s covers. When that came to an end Paul and Sue started to frequent Folk clubs again starting at ‘The Woodman’ and it was not too long before Paul dusted off his Acoustic guitar and did a floor spot with his son Chris. 
Persuading Sue to get up and sing and perform her favourite Waterfall songs was not difficult, so from then on the duo were born. After singing at other folk clubs around the midlands and wanting to get away from the Paul & Sue tag they decided on the name ‘Velvet Green’.
