Colm Skwirbat

Born 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. Putting his own twist on old blue classics whilst still capturing the raw feel and authenticity of the ’20’s and 30’s bottleneck blues on his 1-string and 4-string guitars. These unusual instruments were built by his father, transforming otherwise mundane materials such as cigar-box, a dog bowl and a broomstick into something new and exciting. Catch Colm when he joins us on the Pagoda stage for what is sure to be an exciting gig!
