Barry views this concert — and all of Sinnerboy’s gigs — as different to a ‘cover band’ performing Rory’s songs,
Barry’s personal connection to Rory’s music is a long-standing one, “With me and Rory, it all started in 1969, I was 17. I went to buy the new Led Zeppelin album in a local record shop, but they were out of stock of the Led Zeppelin album so being a teenage boy with some money in his pocket, I had to buy something!
Hearing his record was one thing, but Brian’s first time seeing him live was life-altering.
Barry never met Rory personally, but Rory’s brother Donal Gallagher has said “here is the proof that my brother’s music lives on.”
Sinnerboy, LIVE at Cork Opera House, Friday, October 29, at 8pm.
