Colm Skwirbat 'Too Much Alcohol'

Have you ever seen someone play a cigar box guitar? And make wonderful music? Well, you are about to...

There were many fine moments during the course of the Hot Press Covers Exhibition, which took place at the National Photographic Archive, in Temple Bar (part of the National Library of Ireland). But one of our favourites was when Colm Skwirbat dropped in to play a few tunes. Aware of his credentials as a bluesman, we invited him down to the covers exhibition to play a few Rory Gallagher tunes. One of the songs he chose was ‘Too Much Alcohol’, which Colm introduces in his own inimitable style.
