Declan O’Rourke: Chronicles of the Great Irish Famine
February 17 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$35.0035.00
“O’Rourke mines the darkest corners…of the Irish famine with a sensitivity that animates a raft of highly personal stories.” — The Irish Times
Declan O’Rourke: Chronicles of the Great Irish Famine in association with the Irish Arts Center NYC. Acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter Declan O’Rourke (“Gallileo”) makes his Isis Music Hall debut with a live performance of his epic song cycle Chronicles of the Great Irish Famine, performed with an eight-piece all-star folk & trad ensemble, including John Sheahan (The Dubliners), Dermot Byrne (Altan), Caitriona Frost (Celtic Woman), and Cillian Vallely (Lúnasa). Winner of a 2018 RTÉ Radio One Folk Award and inspired by O’Rourke’s own family history, Chronicles is an empathic portrait of the forgotten and a vivid musical evocation of Ireland through the incomprehensible hardship of the Great Famine.
