A Celebration Of Rory Gallagher

Rory Gallagher’s music reached a massive audience from Norway to Spain, from Japan to the USA, covering all parts of the globe and producing some of the greatest rock/blues albums of the 60s, 70s and 80s. Sadly we lost Rory on June 14, 1995. To his devoted fans and followers this was the ultimate tragedy.

The Band of Friends is not a tribute to Rory, but more a celebration of his life and music. The band consists of musicians who played with Rory Gallagher as his rhythm section for years and is fronted by the incomparable Davy Knowles (Davy Knowles Band, Back Door Slam)! Alongside Knowles will be bassist Gerry McAvoy (Champion Jack Dupree, Nine Below Zero) and Ted McKenna (Greg Lake, Gary Moore, Michael Schenker Group) on drums. This is the ultimate Roy Gallagher celebration and a not to miss showcase of one of the greatest blues-rockers ever to strap on a guitar.
