New Pierce turner LP in March

Wexford maverick Pierce Turner returns to the fray in March with his new album, The Boy To Be With.

Stand-outs include 'The Ballad Of Rory Gallagher', an emotional tribute to the Fender-wielding legend which includes a number of officially sanctioned samples.

As far as the keeper of the Rory flame, Donal Gallagher, is aware it's the first time his brother's work has been used in this way.
