Send Dom to the IBC in Memphis 2022

From: Dom Martin


Hey everybody,

I'm a very lucky guy as I have been voted (for the 2nd year in a row) "Acoustic Blues Artist of The Year" in the 2021 UK Blues Awards and this has resulted in me being invited by the UK Blues Federation to represent the UK in Memphis Tennessee at The International Blues Challenge (Solo category) in January 2022!

 

It's been a tough time for everyone the last 18 months and musicians in many countries are still not able to earn a living. The UK Blues Federation are kindly contributing £1000 towards the huge costs of this trip however I need your help to fund the remainder. I know many of you have supported me in the past and a lot of you continue to support me day in day out and for that I am truly grateful and extremely humbled. I know it's tough for all of you right now so anything you can donate towards this trip will mean such a lot and I will do my very best to proudly represent the UK Blues scene in Memphis! I've watched some past winners and the standard is the highest you'll ever see........

 

But "hang on" I hear you ask, "is this guy not Irish?" lol

 

I was born in Northern Ireland (UK) and still live in Belfast so that's how I can represent the UK

 

All funds raised will be used for flights, hotels and general living costs whilst in Memphis for 7 nights. I don't drink or smoke anymore so you're not funding that!

 

Again, thank you for anything you can give as this opportunity means the world to me and I'm very proud being able to represent you all.

Big love,

Dom xx
