Update: Derek Nally Whelan’s show postponed

Tomorrow night, Friday October 2nd, sees a very special tribute to Derek Nally in Whelan’s, Dublin. Derek worked very closely with Ham Sandwich who will play alongside Pugwash, Howe Gelb, Bell X1 (acoustic), Mundy, Richie Egan, David Kitt, The Walls, Freddie White, Tír na nÓg and James Vincent McMorrow.

Tickets are priced at €20, all proceeds will be donated to the Nally family.

Derek worked with the great and the good over the years including Judy Collins, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Bert Jansch, John Cale, Guy Clarke, Townes Van Zandt, John Martyn, Allen Toussaint, Ian Dury & the Blockheads, Alex Chilton, Arlo Guthrie, Booker T, and John Cooper Clarke, to mention just a few. He also managed the acclaimed Irish acts Juliet Turner and Ham Sandwich, steering their careers with remarkable passion and enthusiasm. Derek was particularly generous with his time when it came to offering advice to up and coming musicians, promoters and managers. His encyclopedic knowledge of music coupled with his straight-forward business ideals served him well in a long and esteemed career. His legacy is a positive example to everyone who works in the music industry.

UPDATE: This gig has now been postponed to Dec 22nd.
