News: RORY GALLAGHER celebrated in virtual festival – Sunday 14 June

Rory Gallagher -  Isle Of Wight Festival  1970

Sunday 14 June will mark the 25th anniversary of the passing of the legendary musician Rory Gallagher.

In the absence of this year’s four-day celebration in Ballyshannon the day will be marked by Rory followers around the world. WDR TV, in Germany, will be transmitting his many infamous Rockpalast performances and other European countries will be broadcasting Rory documentaries and concert programming.

On the 14th, Eagle Rock in partnership with YouTube will screen Rory’s performance with Taste at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 at 8:00 p.m. (BST) and in the build up to that a streamed mini Rory festival will be taking place across Facebook and YouTube, starting at 5pm, featuring a number of musicians who played with or are inspired by Rory.

Hosted by radio presenter David ‘Kid’ Jensen, the stream will include ‘Band Of Friends’ featuring Rory’s former drummer and bass player Brendan O’Neil and Gerry McAvoy, Belfast born singer/songwriter Dom Martin and Peter Donegan, son of Rory’s first musical hero Lonnie Donegan, and Eamonn McCormack.

The publication will also feature contributions from the Rory’s many admiring peers including new interviews with Slash, Johnny Marr, J Mascis amongst others.
