Although primarily known as a solo acoustic artist and Dom is more than capable of holding a large audience on his own with his mesmerising techniques and strong vocal, he can also be accompanied by a band in larger venues and festivals.
With Covid -19 dominating 2020/21 and destroying the live music sector, one highlight was Dom and the band headlining the Official Rory Gallagher Online Festival to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his passing in June 2020. The show, compered by David "Kid" Jensen on the Official Rory Gallagher Facebook and YouTube pages has had around 94k views to date.
This unassuming musician is another fine product of the famous Belfast music factory responsible for Sir Van Morrison, Gary Moore, Paul Brady, Brian Kennedy, Foy Vance and many more.
