A NEW documentary about legendary Irish rocker Rory Gallagher's band Taste will have its northern premiere tonight at Belfast's Strand Arts Centre, followed by a live Q&A session with Rory's brother and Taste road manager Donal Gallagher.

Presented by the East Side Arts Festival, Taste: What's Going On? Live at The Isle of Wight Festival tells the story of the band formed in Cork in 1966 by the Co Donegal-born guitar maestro.

Taste had a brief but influential career, releasing two studio albums and disbanding shortly after their legendary live appearance at the 1970 Isle Of Wight Festival, the centrepiece of the new documentary.

Featuring contributions from Donal Gallagher along with Brian May, The Edge, Bob Geldof and renowned guitarist Larry Coryell, the film offers a loving look back at the importance of Taste in the history of rock.

:: Tickets priced £12 available from Eastsidearts.net and the Strand Arts Centre.
