JOHNNY GALLAGHER, the Irish guitarist regarded as one of the finest players of the instrument either here or in Britain, is coming to Galway.
Johnny Gallagher & The Boxtie Band will play Monroe’s Live on Thursday March 15 at 10pm where he will play original songs from his latest album Peace Of Mind as well as personal versions of songs by Lynyrd Skynrd, Jimi Hendrix, and Peter Green.
He can change from full on aggressive rock to quieter moments of more tender, introspective, music, and in the course of a set he shows his wizardry on both electric and acoustic guitars.
He has played festivals and clubs all over Europe and London’s Time Out magazine has praised his “magical fusion of country, jazz, blues, a little roadhouse rock and some loud rock n’roll”.
Admission is €10. Tickets are available on the door or through [email protected] and 091 - 583397.
