The amazing RM Hubbert will be making his return to The Vintage Room at The Workman’s Club on Friday, 14th August. He was recently in Ireland as a special guest to Mogwai and supported them at their performances in The Cork Opera House and Dublin’s own Olympia Theatre. Hailing from Glasgow, he’s a truly talented guitarist who pens music about love, death, friendship, mental illness and occasionally, a dog called D Bone! It’s REALLY not as depressing as the previous sentence suggests. He also won Scottish Album of the Year for his record, ‘Thirteen Lost & Found’.
One of Glasgow’s more prolific artists, Hubbert has released music under a variety of guises since 1993. It was EL HOMBRE TRAJEADO’s triptych of albums released between 1995 and 2005 though, that really put Hubbert on the musical map, earning swathes of critical acclaim, three Peel Sessions and support slots with the likes of Sebadoh, Tortoise, Nick Cave, Deerhoof, Mùm, Mike Watt, and The Delgados.
