Emerald Guitars are on the road this morning to host our very first pop-up shop at the Rory Gallagher International Festival this weekend.
As big fans of the award-winning South Donegal festival, we have been hoping to organise something in the birthplace of world-renowned artist Rory Gallagher for years.
So this morning Alistair packed up the car and hit the road and headed for Ballyshannon to show guitar enthusiasts attending the event a wide range of our instruments.
The entrance to the Emerald Pop-Up Shop is located at Mac Coueran Music, The Old Barracks, Main Street, to the left of the Festival Office. We would like to say a special ‘Thank You’ to Mark Mac Coueran for his hospitality and hosting us for the next two days.
We have a wide range of Emeralds with us and we look forward to meeting anyone who would like to try out one of our X20s, the Chimaera double neck acoustic, a Balor Bass, or even an Amicus (short scale 12-string), all made right here in Donegal.
The annual festival will attract Rory Gallagher fans from all over Europe and beyond and members of the extended Emerald family, well-known to our YouTube Channel, feature in the line-up, including the annual festival highlight that is Johnny Gallagher & Boxtie, Mark Black and Cian O’Donnell.
Highlights of the festival include The Eric Bell Band (ex Thin Lizzy) The Bernie Marsden Band (ex Whitesnake), Band Of Friends (featuring Gerry McAvoy, Ted McKenna and Marcel Scherpenzel), Ten Years After (Ric Lee, Chick Churchill, Colin Hodgkinson and Marcus Bonfanti) and many more.
