Don Baker & Rob Strong Band

Two of Ireland’s best known rock/blues musicians have collaborated to record an album together and tour many of Ireland’s best known venues in 2018.

Don Baker is known as a prolific singer/songwriter/musician for over 50 years and has had two number one singles ‘Winner in You’ on the RTE label and ‘Inner City’, which was recorded by The Jolly Beggarmen.

Rob Strong, from Derry, on bass guitar and lead vocals, is another of Ireland’s Living Legends, who also has been performing for more than five decades! Rob still has that unique and sensational voice that saw him pull in huge crowds with one of the top showbands in the ‘60s The Plattermen, and his own band The Rockets in the 1970s.
