Tir Hugh Resource Centre The Mall Ballyshannon
The Rory Gallagher Exhibition
Wed Oct 3-Sun Oct 7, 2001
To celebrate the life and times of Rory Gallagher (1949-1995) - iconic, Ballyshannon born musician- a special exhibition will be mounted at the Tir Hugh Centre by the late artist's brother, Donal Gallagher. Rory's only sibling served with him through his four decade career- initially as Taste's road manager and thereafter as Rory's full-time manager during which time he collected and preserved all of the priceless material which goes to make up this fascinating exhibition.
The exhibition will consist of a selection of Rory's instruments, to include this world famous Fender Stratocaster guitar, posters from concerts he gave throughout the world, photographs in the form of black and white studies, a continuous projected colour slide show, copies of his recordings and their variations in release, elements of his song-writing talent, footage from various concerts, computer access to a number of Rory fan websites, newspaper articles and artefacts connected with the musician. A selection of Rory's music will be permanently played throughout the run of the exhibition.
To offically launch the exhibition, Donal will personally attend and talk on his favourite subject - his late, great brother and will happily share his cherished memories with all.
