Irish singer-songwriter Declan O’Rourke is acclaimed for his soulful folk and trad inspired music. With a style that moves faultlessly between impressionism and story telling, his songs have been covered by a growing list of artists ranging from Christy Moore to Eddi Reader.

Declan’s latest album Chronicles Of The Great Irish Famine, released in October, combines traditional Irish music and modern song-writing to present a series of extraordinary true tales from the most dynamic period in Ireland’s history.

“A most talented singer-songwriter… [possessing] a rich, soulful, musical voice and a brilliant instrumental ability” Paul Brady

“One of the finest songwriters on the planet” Eddi Reader
