Mat Horne is to a host a new music TV show about the regional music scene in Britain.
The Gavin & Stacey star, who is himself an accomplished touring club DJ, will front Sounds From The Cities for Channel 4, offering a guide to the best music venues around the country and featuring guest performances from both established artists and new musical talent.
Mat said: "I'm excited to be working with Bobcom and Channel 4 on this fresh and innovative take on music history and really getting to the nitty-gritty about how the cities in which bands evolve affect the music they produce. And also, hear some great music, new and old!"
The four-week series, made in conjunction with new website Bobcom, will begin on Wednesday February 9 and will be broadcast each week from different locations across the UK.
The show will review the regional music scene, looking at both the heritage of music in the areas it visits and future outlook.
Mat will chat to big names in music, discussing the world of the web and downloads, and the culture-changing dynamics inherent in new music trends across the UK and Ireland.
