Matthew Turner - Versatile Singer & Guitarist
Genre Music’s ‘Musician of the Year Winner 2020’
“Matthew Turner is a versatile and talented wedding singer/guitarist who is an extremely professional and committed individual who takes great pride in his work”
Having travelled all over the UK and even as far as the island of Hvar in Croatia to perform at weddings and events, I have a keen understanding of the importance of live music and how it can be used to create the perfect atmosphere for any occasion. You can be confident that your event entertainment will exceed all expectations, from a professional musician who is approachable, accommodating and committed to making your special day the best it can be.
At 28 years of age, I am a seasoned performer with 11 years worth of experience performing at weddings and events. I’m fully self sufficient with high spec industry standard equipment and my ever expanding repertoire consists of over 200 cover songs with my own unique twist, touching on a wide variety of decades from the 1950’s right through to the 2020’s.
Ideal setups for: Weddings (Ceremonies, Wedding Breakfasts and Evening Entertainment), Private and Public Events.
