Jack O’Rourke (Sunset Concert)
February 18, 2020 at 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Jack O’Rourke is one of those mercurial artists whose musical imagination and personality has made him an intriguing entity to his many fans. This Cork native’s debut album entered The Irish Album Chart at number 19 and reached number 5 on its second week of release. With his grizzled baritone and ethereal falsetto, Jack’s songs chronicle lost love, street lit avenues and open highways filled with possibility.
“Jack O’ Rourke’s music has a grace and a glory to it that will stop you in your tracks and make you forget where you were going!
“Silence” is one of the songs of the year for me”….RTE’s Fiachna ó Braonáin. His latest single “Showomanship” is a joyous ode to Jack’s grandmother and the women who’ve inspired him throughout his life. The songs draw on the bursting dancerock of Arcade Fire and the pop sensibilities of ABBA, evening things out with Jack’s inimitable voice and penchant of strong story-telling.
