7pm Gerry Quigley Band at Crosshaven Regatta
19:00 - 21:00
Gerry Quigley has returned home to Ireland after 30 successful years in Australia where he received many awards including honorary life membership of the prestigious Perth Blues Club.
Now based in Cork City it's no surprise that since his return home to Ireland Gerry Quigley is fast gaining a well-deserved reputation as one of Ireland's living guitar legends, this Dublin boy is back!
When you see Quigley play live you hear almost immediately why he is so often compared to guitar legends like Gary Moore, Rory Gallagher or Jimi Hendrix.
"Exquisite progressive rock guitar mastery" / "Phil Lynott & Thin Lizzy. Quigley is one of that rare breed"-Blues Matters magazine UK 2017
To describe this as a jaw-dropping show is an under-statement, Gerry's original progressive rock it ebbs and it flows, at times haunting, & mesmerising as it takes you on a journey to another world.
With Gerry's ecclectic collection of guitars and things with strings you'll hear a perfect combination of blues-inspired prog rock instrumentals along with upbeat and catchy original blues, some of the best of classic blues along with classic 70s rock paying tribute to those who have inspired Gerry's own style including Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy, Rory Gallagher, The Doors, Pink Floyd and many more ... one thing is for certain, prepare to be captivated!
This man and his band will re-invent your idea of spectactular! If you love to hear the best of the best blues rock, prog rock and orginals, then seriously don't miss this show!!!
