Thursday/Friday February 23rd 24th (2023): Dom Martin (UK/IRELAND)
Doors: 7:30pm Show: 8:30pm – 10:45pm + encores
Brought up in the often tough, but community driven streets of Belfast Northern Ireland, Dom Martin has made a fairly ‘meteoric’ rise in terms of today’s industry, with his first ever EP release attracting BBC 6 music and BBC Radio 2 support – including a converted session with Cerys Matthews and an ever growing number of international tours and Festivals. His jaw dropping, entirely natural sounding and unforced/unschooled skill on acoustic guitar, matched with an authentic ‘Belfast Blues’ voice, brings to mind comparisons with many from (Glasgow born) John Martyn to Rory Gallagher, with nods to many in-between not least perhaps the likes of Van Morrison and Foy Vance.
