|Description:||For sheer quality and distinction look no further than the career of Benny Gallagher. One half of hit makers and blue chip songwriters Gallagher & Lyle. In 1970 his and Graham Lyle's astute composing abilities propelled McGuinness Flint to the top of the charts with their hit songs "When I'm Dead and Gone" and "Malt and Barley Blues".
After a brief spell as members of Ronnie Lane and The Slim Chance Band playing on the hit singles" How Come", "The Poacher" and the ensuing Album “Any More for Anymore" Gallagher & Lyle enjoyed a string of their own successes including the richly romantic "Heart on my Sleeve" and "I Wanna Stay With You". Their “Breakaway” album was a huge success – with even more accolades to follow when its title track was recorded by Art Garfunkel for his biggest selling solo Album.
Over the years, Benny has worked with a glittering array of international artists many of whom have recorded his songs and we look forward to welcoming him back to the Isle of Man.|
