Del Dios's own Rock'n'Roll Hall of Famer & Steve Miller/Van Morrison alumnus Greg Douglass welcomes Iain Matthews, considered one of the pioneers of 60s Folk-Rock, together with singer/songwriter, guitarist Steve Postell. The show is a music lover's dream... creative genius, and multi-platinum sales. ("Steve Miller's Greatest Hits", which contains Greg's co-write "Jungle Love" has sold 14 million albums). Steve Postell and Greg will be joined by his long time musical partner, Michael Muldoon, who sang and co-wrote most of the "Greg Douglass & the Accomplices" CD.

Iain Matthews first gained attention as a founding member and vocalist for the innovative Fairport Convention. He moved on to create Matthews’ Southern Comfort who had a No 1 hit in the UK with Joni Mitchell’s ‘Woodstock’. Iain moved on during the 1970’s with another group, Plainsong. Between his own solo recording and various Plainsong line-ups Iain released ten albums to critical acclaim including another well known Top Ten US hit with the single ‘Shake It’. During the early 1980’s Matthews recorded a wonderful version of Peter Gabriel’s ‘Mercy Street”, contributed to a Phil Ochs’s Tribute album and recorded plus toured with Nanci Griffith. In 2000 Matthews settled in the Netherlands and found a busy, happy life in Europe. More collaborative recordings were issued including a Tribute album to Sandy Denny. However, Matthews feels he has finally found an almost perfect musical sweet spot, playing solo.
Steve Postell is a singer/songwriter/guitarist/composer and producer. His latest solo CD for Immergent Records features a host of brilliant guests including David Crosby, Jennifer Warnes, John Oates, Robben Ford, and many others.
