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. Colm has performed at events such as Body&Soul, Electric Picnic, the Festival of Writing and Ideas at Borris, as well as main stage at the International Rory Gallagher Festival. 9.30 free in!
