A true Donegal legend makes his Balor debut
Johnny Gallagher is widely acknowledged as one of the finest guitar players on the European touring circuit, working his way through festivals, clubs and venues all over the continent.
His live shows with The Boxtie Band are good over-driven rock ‘n’ roll featuring his own original material along with stunning personal versions of selected classics such as Hendrix’ Hey Joe, Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Sweet Home Alabama and Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here.
Johnny is an explosive live entertainer oozing charisma and excitement with that indefinable ‘can’t teach it you either have it or you don’t’ larger than life onstage presence. And boy can he play that guitar – switching from full on aggressive rock to quieter moments of more tender, introspective music showcasing his wizardry on both electric and acoustic guitars.
To top it all, Johnny possesses a truly unique and expressive voice showcasing his songs with dynamics that swoop from a scream to a whisper.
This will be the full on European festival 5 piece line-up with Johnny joined by brothers Pauric and James and the rest of the crew. We’ve been trying for 5 years now to get these guys to play The Balor. We’re pretty confident it’s going to be worth the wait.
