Saturday 5pm at The Garden Stage @The Harbour Bar and Sunday 2.30pm supporting Dom Martin on The Phil Lynott Stage @The Bloody Stream
Born in Dublin in 1997, Colm Skwirbat is carrying on the tradition of the old blues masters of the Mississippi Delta by playing the blues on his homemade cigar-box guitars. He puts his own twist on old blues classics, while still capturing the raw feel and authenticity of the ‘20s and ‘30s bottleneck blues on his 1-string and 4-string guitars. These unusual instruments were built by his father out of otherwise mundane materials, such as a cigar-box, a dog bowl and a broomstick. If its authenticity you want, this is it. Colm will also be opening for Dom Martin on Sunday.
