The addition of Wilko Johnson to the line-up for this Special 21st Anniversary salute to the Late Great G-Man is being widely welcomed on all social media platforms. The Saturday night is a stunning line-up that also includes local legend JOHNNY GALLAGHER & the Boxtie Band as well as the Best Guitarist of the Year Award winner at the recent European Blues Awards - LAURENCE JONES & HIS BAND.
Wilko Johnson said “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to return to Rory’s birthplace, we had such a great gig in Ballyshannon last year, it has to be done again. It’s going to be a brilliant festival and Norman's going to be real busy, as he is also performing on the Sunday night with "The Blockheads" in Ballyshannon, I am really looking forward to playing at Rory Gallagher Festival 2016 in Ireland, going to be great”.
Festival Chairperson Barry O’Neill said “we are absolutely delighted that Wilko Johnson & His Band are returning, so many people were asking us to bring Wilko, Norman & Dylan back and we didn't have to think twice. It adds to an already awesome Festival line-up and it is going to be a very fitting tribute to Rory, 21 years after his sad passing”.
