BAND OF FRIENDS
A Celebration of Rory Gallagher
feat. GERRY McAVOY + special guests
Irish Blues-Rock guitarist, songwriter Rory Gallagher started out in R&B power trio Taste in 1966. Taste supported Cream and Blind Faith and split in 1970 after their appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival. Rory starting touring under his own name alongside bassist Gerry McAvoy.
Sadly we lost Rory on 14th June 1995, to his devoted fans and followers this was the ultimate tragedy. The Band of Friends is not a tribute to Rory, more a celebration of his life and music featuring his long-term bassist Gerry McAvoy and special guests.
