With his acoustic tour imminent, multi award-winning guitarist Dom Martin has already announced his forthcoming Buried In The Hail Autumn 2023 Album Tour.
One of the most talked about Irish artists in a generation and likened by many to the legendary Irish guitarist Rory Gallagher, Belfast-raised Dom Martin will bring his full-band electric show to his fast-growing UK fanbase.
Martin’s new studio album Buried In The Hail will be released in September, on 8th October he will perform at the Carlisle Blues Festival, and his tour take him the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland through to mid-November.
Nominated for three awards at this year’s UK Blues Awards including Blues Vocalist of the Year, Blues Artist of the Year, and Blues Instrumentalist of the Year, the 32-year-old musician was brought up in the community driven streets of Northern Ireland and makes no secret of his early struggles with drugs and alcohol, frequently referencing this during his very personal and intimate solo shows.
With five European and UK Blues Awards under his belt since 2019, he has attracted attention from Joe Bonamassa, featuring regularly on his Spotify playlists and gaining a coveted invitation to play as a band on the 3rd annual Keeping the Blues Alive III Mediterranean Cruise from 17th – 22nd August 2023 alongside Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Blackberry Smoke and Christone ‘Kingfish’ Ingram, and many more blues artists.
New studio album Buried In The Hail is said to be “steeped in the roots, Americana, and blues genres.
The UK Blues Awards 2022 winner of the Blues Acoustic Artist Of The Year award and Best Instrumentalist of the Year award said, “I can’t wait to see my UK fans again with my solo show, I can never quite believe how quiet they are when I’m playing, it really helps me get right into the moment, it’s an awesome feeling for both me and the audience.
