The gig will start at 8.30pm with a 45-minute set of Rory’s acoustic music by guitarist Chris Newman.

Three-piece band Sinnerboy will then take over at 9.30pm with “a full blown Rory set to rock your socks off”.

“Sinnerboy have played an enormous part in helping to ensure that Rory’s music is not forgotten, as they’ve gigged extensively around the UK and Europe, playing at most of the international Rory Gallagher festivals which have sprung up over the years,” say promoters.

“There have been changes in the rhythm section over the years, but this line-up is with Sinnerboy’s original drummer Steve Richardson and Derek White on bass.

“If you’re already a Rory fan you’ll be thrilled with this evening’s entertainment and if you’re not familiar with his music at the start of the night, you’re sure to be a fan by the end of the gig.”

Admission is free.
