Howth Roots and Blues Festival Presents


The Dirt Road Band plus Dubh Lee


The Dirt Road Band is the brainchild of guitar legend Steve Walwyn, mainly known as the longest serving guitar player in Dr Feelgood (32 years). During this time, he has amassed a massive reputation as a guitar hero in the UK, Europe, and beyond. He says, 'I'd always liked the idea of the power trio, stripping everything back to the basics. Guitar, bass, and drums. 


To help him in this he has recruited the services of drummer Ted Duggan - professional since the 60s, including stints with Badfinger and world techno giants Banco de Gaia. 'I'd worked with Ted before, Steve says 'I knew he would fit the gig perfectly. He certainly does. 


Bass player Horace Panter is better known as a founding member of The Specials. Horace has 'groove imprinted on his DNA. Holding it down comes as second nature. This then is Steve's dream team rhythm section that swings as hard as it rocks. 


'We have started to develop that musical telepathy that makes a band more than just the sum of its parts. It is a really thrilling time and keeps music alive'.
