Event description

Description

In association with the New York Irish Arts Center, the Kansas City Irish Center is pleased to welcome acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter Declan O'Rourke ("Gallileo") to Kansas City for 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.

General admission seating; the Center's wee pub will be open.

This performance is presented with support from Culture Ireland, the agency for the promotion of Irish arts worldwide.
