Following his two previous sell out shows here, we are delighted to see Declan returning to the Riverbank Arts Centre, on the back of his sell-out Mag Pai Zai tour, having recently completed the Transatlantic Sessions UK tour and a month-long tour of the US.
Despite having a keen interest in music and singing from an early age, it was during his teenage years spent in Melbourne that he first got hold of a guitar. O’Rourke was exposed to a different cultural aesthetic at this point which, coupled with his own well-formed cultural identity, may account for his unique style of melody and melancholia.
Declan recently performed 'A Little Something,' and 'Galileo' from his debut album, at the BBC Last Night of the Proms with the Ulster Orchestra in Castle Park, Bangor.
Word is getting out, slowly but very surely, about Declan O’Rourke’s song writing skills. Don’t be the last to find out.
