Meet the instructor Patricia Hammond & Matt Redman
Patricia Hammond is a UK-based mezzo-soprano with wide-ranging gifts. Her meltingly lyrical voice is as comfortable in her beloved nostalgic songs as it is singing the works of Bach and Handel. Patricia’s beautifully reconstructed performances of Victorian, Edwardian, 1920s, 30s and 40s songs have charmed audiences around the world. Her recordings have been played on BBC 2, 3 and 4, and in November 2018 she was selected as the soloist for the German national commemoration of the end of the First World War. Matt Redman is a multi-instrumentalist, arranger and composer. Specialising in guitars and other plucked strings: harp guitar, bass guitar, banjos, mandolin family, I also play numerous other instruments including: piano, double bass, lap steel, oud, lute, ukulele, piano accordion and mallet percussion. I am experienced performing, recording, directing & arranging: rock/pop, country, jazz/blues, folk/world, classical (inc. early music and contemporary), musicals, soundtracks and fusion music styles.
