The small town of Ballyshannon will once again open its doors to the world for the Rory Gallagher International Tribute Festival from 30th May to 2nd June, tipping our collective caps to the guitar genius of the Donegal man.

An inspirational musician to many but unique to us all, Rory Gallagher's legacy is there for all to appreciate having started out with the showband 'The Impact' before establishing 'Taste' and gave us great recordings and performing moments such as Montreux and at the Isle of Wight, Rory was pure relentless and with the Rory Gallagher Band continued that dedication and hard work on a global scale. He produced more than a dozen albums, devoting his entire life to music and his fans, selling over 30 million albums worldwide with his marathon tours and live performances winning him great acclaim.
