Top international tribute band, Sinnerboy return to Portlaoise to play the epic music of the late, great Rory Gallagher at Kavanaghs!
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 in the last seventeen years and apart from gigging extensively in Europe, have headlined Rory Gallagher tribute events in Ireland, Italy, Austria, UK, 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 Ireland's 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.
