Ararat Live audiences have attested to Gallie’ reputation as a powerhouse live performer and songwriter.

These performances that have made him a favourite at many festivals over the years, including Queenscliff Music Festival, Yackandandah and The National Celtic Festival.

He spent many years travelling the world playing music especially in Europe, Ireland, England and France.

Gallie will be performing new songs from his planned new record due for release later this year.
