Walter Trout & His Band are the latest act to be announced for the 4-day Festival that honours Ireland's greatest Rock 'n Blues Guitarist - Rory Gallagher. Other acts announced to date include John Wilson's Taste, Wishbone Ash featuring Andy Powell, Eric Steckel Band (USA), Brian Downey's Alive & Dangerous (ex. Thin Lizzy), Pat McManus Band, Laundromat (Holland), Johnny Gallagher & Boxtie, Sinnerboy (UK), The Mississippi Sheiks (Ireland) with many more acts to be announced in the coming weeks.
Walter Trout plays earth shattering blues rock music, he was voted the sixth best guitarist ever in a BBC Radio listeners poll and gets rave reviews whenever he plays. Walter hasn’t come out of voluntary retirement nor has he been away ‘finding himself’. One of the world’s best blues guitarists.
Rory Gallagher International Tribute Festival Committee will be announcing several other headline acts in the coming weeks and the Irish Festival of the Year (for attendances over 10,000 people) is set to become another great event with open-air Street Gigs, Workshops, the Rock Hospital Acoustic gig, Nightly Blues Rock Pub gigs and the legendary Big Top gigs on 1st, 2nd and 3rd June 2018.
