It is a real pleasure to bring Rory McLeod back to Upfront Arts Venue as he was the first person to ever perform in the newly built arts venue many years ago. An ex-circus clown and fire eater Rory is a one-man-soul-dance-band, and poet.  He has a natural troubadour’s talent for weaving magical, musical, storytelling spells accompanied by his own bizarre solo orchestra of distinctive instruments.  The spoons, finger-cymbals, bandorea, Djembe-drum, harmonica, guitar, trombone and-tap-dancing shoes accompany the “rich, raw, deep and resonant” voice of this “singular and liberating performer.”

McLEOD is a musical Gypsy, his eccentric melodies are infused with influences from Flamenco to Country blues, through to Celtic, East European and Calypso rhythms creating a style of music and songwriting that has been described as

“Intimate, revealing, political and powerful.”

“When he sings his songs he will take you on a journey with him.”

“Poetry and dance-stories with verve, sharpness, humour and warmth about people and for people.”

“Great songs to dance to, infectious rhythms, flying harmonica!”

We are offering a pre concert super from Upfront cafe / restaurant booking essential please phone 01768484538 to book.
