Declan O’Rourke will be back at his New York home away from home next week.
The new Irish Arts Center hosts the Dublin singer-songwriter for concerts from July 15-17 and also the American launch of his literary debut, “The Pawnbroker’s Reward,” on the 14th.
O’Rourke will celebrate the release of latest album “Arrivals” and has promised to perform songs from his catalogue, including “Galileo,” “Time Machine,” and “A Little Something.”
Prominent Irish music critic Tony Clayton-Lea has said of the new album, “I think the ‘Arrivals’ album is Declan O’Rourke’s best work to date – more focused, more emotive, more personal. And yet like all his work, there’s a humanitarian universality to it which makes it even more potent.”
O’Rourke has made a number of memorable appearances at the Irish Arts Center beginning with a residency and shows with a string quartet in April 2013. This will be his first time in the new Irish Arts Center.
