“One of the outstanding releases this year….The Occoquan River is brilliant.”Paul Gough, The Inside Sleeve, ABC Radio National. Today we are immersed in noise, and surrounded with distraction and insincerity for the most part, yet the voices of authenticity are plentiful in the underbelly of the music world. You needn’t scratch the surface too far to unearth one, and Gallie stands brazen amongst them all. Gallie’s original songs contribute his own colour to a significantly rich canvas that echo the influence of legendary Irish forefathers such as Van Morrison, and extend a warm handshake to folk artists like Neil young and John Martyn.

Music concert with original songs. Interspersed with humorous, witted and intelligent stories, describing the background behind the songs and the inspiration that brought them to life.
