Mat Callahan and Yvonne Moore are a folk/blues/trad collective of two, whose performances, if they don’t make you want to join the nearest revolution, will at the very least leave you searching for the nearest guitar... They will blow you away.
From San Francisco originally, but now living in Bern, Switzerland, Mat, in the past, composed and performed music with world-beat band, The Looters, whose success led to the founding of the artists' collective Komotion International. For 11 years, Komotion was a centre of radical art making and revolutionary politics in San Francisco. He is the author of three books, Sex, Death and the Angry Young Man, Testimony, and The Trouble With Music. www.matcallahan.com
Since she first took to the stage more than 20 years ago, Yvonne has become among the most well known and powerful blues singers in her native Switzerland. Over the last two decades, she has performed in London, San Francisco, and throughout Germany, France and Ireland. For Yvonne, blues is not only a musical form but a reservoir of experience and nourishment in peoples' struggle to unleash their humanity.
