BUCKINGHAM bluesmaster Bernie Marsden will play a tribute to the late, great musician and songwriter Rory Gallagher at The Stables in Milton Keynes next Friday, April 22.

Mr Marsden, who was lead guitarist and songwriter for the chart-topping rock band Whitesnake, toured all over Europe with his Bernie Plays Rory! homage last year.

The tour included an appearance at the Rory Gallagher Festival in Ireland.

Next Friday’s gig will also feature former Rory Gallagher band members David Levy on bass and Richard Newman on drums, with FM’s Jim Kirkpatrick on guitar. Tickets are £19.50 from the box office on 01908 280800. Music starts at 8pm. A new Bernie Plays Rory album will be available, with five extra tracks added to the current CD.
