Event description

Description

Two of Ireland’s best known rock/blues musicians have collaborated to record an album

together and tour many of Ireland’s best known venues in 2018. Don Baker is known as a

prolific singer/songwriter/musician for over 50 years and has had two number one singles

‘Winner in You’ on the RTE label and ‘Inner City’, which was recorded by The Jolly

Beggarmen. Other artists to record Don’s songs include Sinéad O’ Connor, Finbar Furey,

Declan O’ Rourke and Liam Ó Maonlaoi, with Bono from U2 describing Don as ‘the best

harmonica player in the world’. Don has published several books on how to play the

harmonica, which have been translated into many different languages, including Japanese!

He has also released a total of 15 albums during his career. As an actor Don is best known

for his role in ‘In the Name of the Father’ alongside Daniel Day Lewis, and also as gangster

Thomas Flynn in ‘Fair City’.


Rob Strong, from Derry, on bass guitar and lead vocals, is another of Ireland’s Living

Legends, who also has been performing for more than five decades! Rob still has that

unique and sensational voice that saw him pull in huge crowds with one of the top

showbands in the ‘60s The Plattermen, and his own band The Rockets in the 1970s.

Indeed, Rob once turned down the opportunity to join the world famous band Deep Purple. Rob also plays bass and sings, with his son, Andrew Strong, lead singer of The Commitments, when they tour in Germany, Denmark and Sweden.


The band also features one of Ireland’s best keyboard players, Salvatore Urbano, from

Naples in Italy. ‘Sal’ has also recorded with Damien Dempsey, Brian Kennedy, Sinead O’

Connor and Eleanor McEvoy. He is widely regarded as amongst the best in the business and fuses the band’s blues and rock genres in such a creative manner. On drums we have

another of Ireland’s finest. All in all, Don, Rob and the boys guarantee a great night of rock n’ roll.
