The Irish Arts Center, New York and IAHC, in association with the Old Town School of Irish Music, supported by the Consulate of Ireland in Chicago, presents “Declan O’Rourke’s Chronicles of the Great Irish Famine”.
Acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter Declan O’Rourke brings his epic song cycle, “Chronicles of the Great Irish Famine” to the Old Town School of Folk Music, performed with an eight-piece all-star folk and trad ensemble, including John Sheahan of The Dubliners, Dermot Byrne of Altan, Caitriona Frost of Celtic Woman and Cillian Vallely of 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.
“Declan O’Rourke’s Chronicles of the Great Irish Famine” is Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 7:30pm at the Old Town School of Folk Music at 4545 North Lincoln Avenue, Chicago. Tickets are $46.
