Mayo Blues Club is hosting the return of two of Ireland’s finest blues artists to Castlebar on November 3 in TF Royal Ruby Room.
Martin Cummins, AKA The Stonecold Hobo, has been described as ‘a master of slide guitar’. His original work reflects many classic blues players, such as Elmore James, Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters, with a nod to players like Rory Gallagher or Jimmy Page.  
A recent Blues Jam Fan Radio review of Cummins’ latest album, ‘Notes From The Boyne Delta’, said” “Who says straight ‘homespun sounding’ blues can’t be skilled and rockin’ all at the same time? The Stonecold Hobo has blues running through his Irish veins and oozing from his pores.”
David King is a Dublin-based folk and blues singer-songwriter. His influences go back to the blues greats like such Howlin’ Wolf and Son House. His Delta and Chicago blues style is delivered with his unique blend of Irish soul and original vocal and guitar styles. “He makes complex chord progressions work in the blues format,” writes Pure M Mag.
David’s latest album ‘Custodian’ is being released this November, and the Castlebar audience will be some of the first to hear his new material.

The gig starts at 9pm and will be followed by The Club Blues Band.
