We are Theo & Anja van Baar, Paul & Linda Handgraaf, Richard & Lia de Ruiter and last but not least Jan van Bodegraven, true Rory fans from the early days.
The Rory Gallagher tribute foundation is up and running. The objective of the foundation is to keep the music and spirit of Rory alive by organizing tributes.
We hope that these tribute events become a meeting place for the existing fans as well as that new fans are attracted to join, people who may have never seen Rory live and only heard about him recently. That’s how we want to keep the spirit alive.
Our main event is the annual International Rory Gallagher tribute concert Holland, always the first weekend in March. In addition we plan for a tribute in November and occasionally we organize special events.
Our foundation, like any other foundation, is a non-profit organization. Our income is the entry fee for the tributes and sponsorships and all income is used to hold the tributes. It is that simple and straight forward.
It goes without saying that without the help of many volunteers, these tributes would not be possible.
We do hope that you will continue to support us and if you have any suggestion or question please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are Charly Krimmel, Holger Hartl, Alex Penner and Martin Vabitsch, four Viennese friends and bluesrock lovers, and we share a deep love for Rory’s music. Several visits to the annual Rory Gallagher International Festival at Ballyshannon, where we have been frequently asked why there wasn’t such an event in Austria, triggered the idea to organize a tribute in our hometown Vienna. This was the day of birth for the Club Bluesrock Friends.
Finally, in March 2017, we opened the doors for more than 250 Rory fans from 13 different countries for the first RORY GALLAGHER TRIBUTE FESTIVAL VIENNA, a one evening event with gorgeous performances of Sinnerboy, Etched In Blue and Kutscher’s Blues Band and an enthusiastic crowd. To make a long story short, after this evening we were sure that this event had to be repeated in 2018 as a full two-day festival event.
The main objective of the Club Bluesrock Friends is to organize and host the annual RORY GALLAGHER TRIBUTE FESTIVAL VIENNA, to bring together Rory Gallagher fans from all over the world in Austria, to celebrate the spirit of this musician together for an evening and to create a cultural exchange between Ireland and Austria.
Moreover, the Club intends the promotion of bluesrock music as one of the must influential and formative musical genres of popular music in the 20th century in a comprehensive sense.
Our club is a non-profit organization. Our income is the entry fee for the tributes and sponsorships, all income is used to organise the tributes and other events by the club. It goes without saying that without the help of many volunteers these tributes would not be possible.
