PRESENTED BY DANIEL EVAN WOOD
Irish Raconteur, Hubert, has a voice bursting from the soul. His songs feature lost loves, inner demons, compulsive liars & day dreamers, rounded out with a masterful hand over the fret board. His performances embody all that is best in modern roots music, combining energy, soul and storytelling.
Lost in a house of mixed tapes and stacks of old blues, folk & soul records, he sifted through each one, de-composing melodies under the wings of his older siblings. By the age of 14 he was performing on stages in pubs and clubs, lying about his age just to get on stage. It was the beginning of a musical journey and far from the typical rural Irish upbringing. After ten years of gigging and busking under his belt, he moved to London, immersing himself in the folk and bluegrass world. Fronting two genre bending bluegrass/old time bands, gigging and touring relentlessly. Quickly, they gained the reputation as some of the finest players and performers in Ireland and the UK. His sound bows a head to the masters of melody and word such as; Tom Waits, Van Morrison, Big Bill Bronzy, Laura Marling, The Beatles, Townes Van Zandt, Kavanagh and Bukowski.
