Fans of Rory Gallagher will be delighted to hear that the mighty Sam Davidson’s Taste will be coming to the Barrel Venue at McHugh’s in Drogheda on Saturday May 20th for a night of heavy blues that'll shake the place to its very foundations!

“SDT” - voted “Northern Ireland’s greatest blues/rock band of today” – by their legion of followers throughout Ireland, Europe and the world, are a power trio doing their own brand of ‘Raw Irish Rock and Blues’ in the style of legendary Irish ‘60s band Taste, of whom Sam and Lyn were members.

Taste was an iconic Irish blues/rock band from the 1960s, who were founded by songwriter and guitarist Rory Gallagher who left the band in 1970. Belfast’s own Sam Davidson has taken over Rory Gallagher’s role as frontman of Taste in his own inimitable style on lead guitar and vocals, with Lyn McMullan on drums and Ali McKenzie on bass keeping the sound and energy of the original band alive.

Expect classic blues, early Taste and Rory numbers, plus some of Sam’s own originals. All adding up to a night that will be utterly unmissable for Blues aficionados and fans of Rory Gallagher and Taste.
