Critically acclaimed fingerstyle guitarist and singer Robert Doyle returns to Bewleys for another night of traditional and original music and song. Since the sell out launch of his debut album at the venue last year he has received widespread praise for his approach to the instrument. With airplay and press coverage from Europe, America and Asia he has been signaled as a new and accomplished exponent of the genre.

As a past student of French-Algerian master musician Pierre Bensusan he continues to explore solo fingerstyle guitar while also displaying fine vocal performances. The music displays influences from not only traditional Irish but also from West African and other folk styles.

"... a new acoustic guitar maestro." R2 Magazine UK

"Fingerstyle guitar expert.... with a unique vocal edge." Irish Music Magazine

"Robert’s fingerstyle guitar playing, and the guitar’s mesmerizing tone, are the main draws of this album. His playing is precise and accomplished, his arrangements individualistic..... owing much to the Sean-nós style, Robert delivers each song on the album with skill and captivating clarity." Folk Radio UK
