21st Annual British Rory Tribute Concert

August 15th, 2016

Welcome back to the longest running Rory Gallagher Tribute Concert. Saturday October 8th 2016 4pm-10.30pm

This year we're back at the very popular 'The Ruby Lounge' 

The Rory fans took this venue to their hearts last year , spacious and comfortable with friendly staff and an excellent atmosphere

The Ruby Lounge is located in Manchester's trendy 'Northern Quarter' with great pubs and restaurants and plenty of accommodation in all price ranges.

Line up this year sees the popular Sinnerboy, The brilliant 'Jim Kirkpatrick and Heavy Weather', 

The wonderfully energetic 'Last Fair Deal' from Spain and, new to all (Outside Athens) EIA Featuring Rich Melville (USA) Barry Barnes (UK) and...wait for it....Brendan O'Neil on drums!

Brendan was Rory's longest serving drummer, he is an utter joy to play with and, like Rory, a true gentleman.

Paul Westwell will be joining in with his superb harmonica playing throughout the evening.

The Rorygig has never been prouder to introduce a line up!


Budget airlines run regularly into Manchester Airport where a very efficient rail shuttle runs into Piccadilly station, only ten minutes walk from the venue
