Musical Tribute to Paddy Gallagher and 12th Return to Camden Town Festival
Date for the diary: Friday 16th July – ‘A Musical Tribute to Paddy Gallagher’ at the London Irish Centre, 50 Camden Square, London NW1 9XB.

The concert will include music from Andy Martyn and Adrian Bourke (Slip Jigolos), The Long Notes, The London Lasses and Pete Quinn, Gary Connolly, Brian Rooney, James Carty and more. Whilst playing at a gig last September, Paddy suffered a haemorrhage to the brain which has resulted in neurological impairments affecting his mobility and speech. Not one to be held down, Paddy is fighting back and has already made real progress. His sense of humour is alive and well and he still enjoys regular laughs with his family and friends. Guitarist and singer, Paddy Gallagher has been a central figure and a popular personality in the London Irish music community over the last three decades – we know that many of you will be keen to support this event for Paddy.

Tickets will be on sale soon through the Festival website
