Declan O Rourke returns to the Lime Tree stage this March as part of a nationwide tour to celebrate his latest album, ‘Arrivals’.

Declan O’Rourke is an artist known as a consummate performer who captivates audiences time and time again the world over – whether commanding the stage alone with a guitar and a microphone, accompanied by a 50 piece orchestra or surrounded by a band.

Having performed extensively in the US, Europe and Australia, O’Rourke’s growing status is one of a significant global artist. Since his debut, ‘Since Kyabram’ (2004), O’Rourke has been praised by songwriting giants such as John Prine and Paul Weller, the latter saying, “he writes the sort of classic songs that people don’t write anymore”.

His work, meanwhile, has been covered by world-class artists such as Christy Moore, Camille O’Sullivan, Eddi Reader, and Josh Groban. O’Rourke has released seven acclaimed albums, an expressive body of work.

His latest (seventh) album, ‘Arrivals’, is assuredly his most distinctive yet. Emerging at a time when the world is in a phase of serious flux, the album is more present than past, however, and is also his most humanitarian.

“Produced by Paul Weller, Arrivals features emotionally potent songs that summon the atmosphere of some of the great folk records that influenced the developing artist and musician as a younger, aspiring writer,” said Tony Clayton Lea of the Irish Times.

‘The Pawnbroker’s Reward,’ O’Rourke’s literary debut, was released on October 29, 2021. A work of historical fiction, the novel comes in the wake of the artist’s widely acclaimed, award-winning record ‘Chronicles Of The Great Irish Famine.’
