Johnny Gallagher and the Boxtie Band rock the Picnic

Bundoran based rockers Johnny Gallagher and the Boxtie band were the surprise ‘underground’ act at the Electric Picnic.
On the last night of the festivval the sound of Johnny G belting out ‘freebird’ could be heard from across the Electric Picnic field, attracting a crowd of entranced music lovers jumping up and down to the tunes, despite their weary, muddy, wellie boot-clad feet. Without a doubt the most electric atmosphere out of all of the gigs and bands I saw at the festival. It was such a shame they didn’t have a bigger arena to play at but after their explosive performance this year you can expect to see and hear a lot more from this band. Main stage act next year, please!
