Dom Martin & Band
SUNDAY 13TH NOVEMBER 2022
Age Limit : Over 18 Only
Although a young man new to the scene, it would be wrong to think Dom Martin hasn't paid his life and musical dues.
Brought up in the often tough, but community driven streets of Belfast Northern Ireland, Dom traded his craft for a time locally without a (self confessed) clue how to break into the (international) music business and possibly with too much humility to try.
'Discovered' by his present manager, Dom 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 quite rightly, he now has a number of international tours and Festivals in the book for 2022.
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. Dom is equally adept on electric with his power trio and is always a popular addition to any blues/rock festival.
