Johnny Gallagher And The Boxty Band: A 2020 Vision (CD)
Irish guitarist and singer Johnny Gallagher enjoys the honour of being counted among the best of European blues musicians, blues rockers and rock 'n rollers. Since the beginning of his career, the artist has played together with his twin brothers in the Boxtie Band.
Now, the blouser, who is always recognisable by his bouffant beard, is releasing a showcase of songs that he has recorded and released over the past ten years. On "A 2020 Vision", the musician shows himself to be versatile, open-minded, entertaining and always at an absolutely high level of quality. Johnny Gallagher and the Boxtie Band release their vision for the current year on Dixiefrog Records, the specialists for roots music and blues.
In the past years, Gallagher released the albums "Whatever is good" (1997), "Johnny Live at Fin McCools" (2002), "Piece of Mind" (2007), "The Studio Sessions" (2014) and "The Pump House Suite" (2018). "A 2020 Vision" now brings together the most important, meaningful and popular songs from these: The Track-List includes 14 selected songs that comprehensively represent Gallagher's oeuvre.
In the Boxtie Band, Johnny plays together with his twin brothers Pauric and James Gallagher. While Johnny's repertoire on guitar and microphone runs the gamut from full, aggressive rock to quieter moments of more tender, introspective music, James always plays his bass powerfully, solidly and punchily. Pauric adds a special touch to the sound with his unorthodox organ and boogie piano style. Drummer Sean dresses the sounds in a remarkable beat corset. Johnny is master of the electric as well as the acoustic guitar. His skills cover a unique range of rock styles and country expressions, masterfully proving himself a true bluesman. Artist and band enjoy an excellent reputation in the scene. Gallagher has already jammed with Buddy Guy. Together with his band, he has opened for Deep Purple, Brian May, Mark Knopfler, Uli von Roth, Tommy Emanuel, Robin Ford, Robert Cray, Chris Spedding, Steve Morse, Marcus Miller and Pat McManus.

That's the ultimate connection, that's what its all about. Its plain and simple Rock and Roll...
