Keeping Rory Gallagher’s memory alive!
Top international tribute band, Sinnerboy, returns to Whelans for another night of the epic music of the late, great Rory Gallagher.
Sinnerboy, from Manchester, have a huge reputation for faithfully recapturing the sound and excitement of a live “Rory gig”. They have played a major role in promoting the revival of Rory’s music, gigging extensively in Europe and headlining Rory Gallagher tribute events in Ireland, England, Holland, Germany, Greece, Spain, Norway and the USA.
Rory Gallagher, who sadly passed away in 1995, was born in Ballyshannon and reared in Cork. He had a huge impact on the world of blues and rock and was Irelands first real ”rock star” – blazing the trail for many major Irish acts to follow on the international stage. Apart from being recognised as one of the greatest ever exponents of the electric guitar, Rory Gallagher left behind an enduring musical legacy which has received fresh recognition over recent years. He was a prolific composer and in his lifetime recorded no fewer than fifteen albums of highly original and soulful blues and rock material.
Sinnerboy will bring out the very best of Rory Gallagher’s music at their upcoming gig. With a repertoire that covers every era of the late Rory’s career they guarantee another blistering performance!
“This is the proof that my brother’s music lives on” Donal Gallagher.
