The Hootles

Silver Dog Music

Matt and John are two of the most sought after musicians in the UK. As performers they have appeared everywhere from The Marquee to The Royal Albert Hall. They have worked with Elbow, Paul Heaton, Stephen Fretwell and many others. Now they have formed The Hootles - Acoustic guitar, harmonica and superb vocal harmonies breathe new life into golden oldies, modern anthems, childhood favourites, guilty pleasures and forgotten classics!
