Still more Rory Gallagher tracks to be heard

Rory Gallagher and his 1961 Fender Stratocaster

The brother of rock guitarist Rory Gallagher has revealed that a treasure trove of unreleased live recordings and lost footage of the late musician awaits release.

The news comes as 10,000 fans gather for the Rory Gallagher International Tribute Festival in his birthplace in Ballyshannon, Co Donegal, this weekend to celebrate the Irish blues maestro.

It also follows the previously 'lost' 1977 studio album 'Notes From San Francisco', which this week entered the US Billboard blues charts at No 4.

Donal Gallagher said fans can look forward to music recorded on the road in the US prior to the guitar legend's death in June 1995 after a liver transplant.

The festival will feature Gallagher sets from guitarists Jan Akkerman and Thin Lizzy's Eric Bell.

Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
