Dom Martin is a Belfast born multi award winning artist, inspired but not constrained by the blues. In 2019 he burst onto the music scene with a unique guitar style and voice, captivating audiences everywhere. BBC Radio 2 Blues Show presenter Cerys Matthews described his work as “Absolutely wonderful stuff”.

Primarily known as a solo acoustic artist, Dom is very capable of holding a large audience on his own with his mesmerising finger picking techniques and strong vocal, he can also be accompanied by a band in larger venues and festivals with a strong repertoire of original material very much in the style of Irish legend Rory Gallagher. He always includes a Gallagher song or two in his set! This unassuming musician is another fine product of the famous Belfast music factory responsible for Sir Van Morrison, Gary Moore, Paul Brady, Brian Kennedy and many more.
