A Celebration of Rory Gallagher Featuring Davy Knowles, Gerry McAvoy, & Ted McKenna. Fans of blues-rock music will likely remember Rory Gallagher, the Irish guitar virtuoso who started with the band Taste in 1969 before turning solo in 1971.

About the tour, Knowles commented, “needless to say, playing in a band with two heroes of mine, who with Rory, helped shape so much of my own music, is an honor beyond description.”

Bassist Gerry McAvoy, who played on every one of Gallagher’s albums, put together the Band of Friends with drummer Ted McKenna as a vehicle for keeping Gallagher’s music and memory alive. Knowles, who comes from a small island between Ireland and Scotland, is the quintessential triple threat: virtuosic guitarist, soulful singer and captivating songwriter.
