Declan O’Rourke is a highly successful Irish artist, acclaimed by his peers, and having achieved many plaudits with his five albums released to date. Declan’s soulful music, rooted in folk and trad, has attracted the praise of countless industry giants, including John Prine, and Paul Weller, among others. The Dubliner’s legend John Sheahan, declared recently that, “after 50 years I have decided it’s time to put a lid on the ‘The Dubliners,’ but I’m sure you’ll all agree that with Declan, and Damien (Dempsey), the future is in good hands”.

Declan's new album is entitled Chronicles Of The Great Irish Famine; fifteen years in the making, this epic song cycle combines the best of traditional Irish music and the heart of modern song-writing to present a series of extraordinary true tales from the most dynamic period of Ireland's history. The album is now on sale.

“Compassion, romance, a sense of mortality and a sense of history run through the songs of Declan O’Rourke. The gravity of the deliberation in their melodies, their calmly sustained phrases, their fatalistic undertone - informs his songs, whether they’re about faithful love or reckoning with elemental forces. His calling is a balladeer, proffering re-assurance in the face of inevitable sorrow.” (The New York Times)

Declan will be joined by his band Mike McGoldrick (pipes, whistles), Floriane Blancke (harp), and Chris Herzberger (fiddle).
