Gig: Sinnerboy – Poulton-le-Fylde – 25 July 2009
Posted on: Thursday, Jul 23, 2009
This Saturday sees the return of Sinnerboy, the UK’s No 1 Rory Gallagher tribute act to the Fylde coast.
Guitarist and singer Barry Barnes is one of Europe’s most active enthusiasts working to keep alive the music and memory of Rory Gallagher.
Since 1996 Barry has organized the annual Rory Gallagher tribute gig at
Dukinfield Town Hall, near Ashton-Under-Lyne, Lancashire, making this the
first, and the longest running Rory Tribute in the world. Currently
established as one of the main events on the Rory calendar, and forced to
re-locate to Sheffield, it continues to grow and now ‘The Rory Gig’
attracts audiences in excess of four hundred people from throughout the UK
The same impetus to celebrate Rory’s genius led Barry to form a tribute
band with two like-minded musicians – bassist Dave Burns and drummer Steve
Tansley. Both Dave and Steve are lifelong Rory fans, not just some
rhythm section that Barry has cobbled together, and it shows! Together as
Sinnerboy and driven by belief, enthusiasm and passion, it’s the bands
stated aim to be amongst the best Rory Gallagher tribute acts in the
Sinnerboy will be playing at Poulton Community Hall, Breck Road, Poulton le Fylde on Saturday July 25th at 9.00pm. Admission is £10. Ring Alan on 01253 890927 to reserve tickets.
Poulton Community Hall is next to Wyre Civic Centre on Breck Road and has plenty of free off street parking. If travelling by bus get the No 2, 15 or 84 to Poulton centre and it is five minutes walk down Breck Road.
