Brilliant interview with BBC Radio Ulster, Northern Ireland on this morning’s “Good Morning Ulster” program with Patricia Moore and Alex McGreevy, discussing Gary and his music and the devotion of his fans. A great interview which really conveyed the feeling and the message that now is the right time for Gary’s statue in Belfast.
Thanks so much to Alex McGreevy, Chris Lindsay and BBC Radio Ulster. This interview is copyright BBC Radio (with permission).
It is with great honour and respect that we announced the acts for GFG 2019:
Sam Davidson’s Taste will open at 8pm with a great mix of Gary Moore and Rory Gallagher tracks. Rory Gallagher was one of Gary’s favourite guitarists.
Eric Bell trio will be playing a very special selection of songs for Gary, including his own originals and some amazing Thin Lizzy tracks as part of Eric’s 50th anniversary tour.
Patricia Moore Band featuring rhythm master extraordinaire Jimmy Howlett (UK) on drums, Dublin’s Gerry Quigley on guitar and Frank McNally on bass.
Gerry Quigley & The Durty Blues Band playing a mix of original progressive blues rock instrumentals inspired by Gary and also inspired by Gerry’s own childhood guitar teacher Eric Bell. You will hear the influences for sure.
The show will finish with an epic blues jam with all musicians on stage!
It’s going to be a very special night. Tickets will be on sale very soon from Ticketmaster. Stay tuned!
The sky was crying when Gary Moore passed away on 6th February 2011. From Thin Lizzy to Colosseum II, together with his solo hits ‘Parisienne Walkways’ and ‘Out In The Fields’, Gary influenced a whole generation of guitar players and guitar playing.
The bass player/producer Bob Daisley had played with Gary since the 1980’s, and is known for suggesting to Gary that he should make a blues album – the rest is history, ‘Still Got The Blues’ was an immense hit, followed by a series of classic modern blues albums. Bob, also known for his contributions to Rainbow and Ozzy Osbourne, was the driving force behind “Moore Blues For Gary”.
