Who's in Sinnerboy?

Barry Barnes


arry first saw Rory perform in 1969 with Taste, he was blown away by Rory's talent and became a huge fan, attending 20 concerts through the years 'I used to think that was a lot before I started playing in Sinnerboy but now I've met fans who have seen him hundreds of times - I'm a lightweight now!'

After Rory's passing in 1995 Barry staged the first ever Rory Gallagher Tribute concert in his home city of Manchester, an ever present in the Rory Calendar and now at it's current location at The world famous Cavern Club (yes THAT one!) in Liverpool each November. The 'Rorygig'

'I loved Rory as a man and I loved his music - i'm just a big fan!'


Steve Richardson

A life long Rory fan Steve was Sinnerboy's original drummer. He left the band in 2006 and since then has played and recorded with various bands around the north west of England before relocating to Sweden. Making various appearances at Cork Rocks for Rory over the past few years has kept him in touch with Rory's music and after playing with Barry and Bri Chambers at the Cork Rocks gig in Macroom in 2014, when the chance came to rejoin Sinnerboy it was too good an opportunity to turn down.

Steve's looking forward to playing the great man's music once again.
