St Peter's Hall again!

Thursday 12th of October, featuring an international double bill with Declan O'Rourke (Ireland) and Vishtèn (Canada).

Declan O'Rourke is a very well known Irish singer songwriter who has released 5 albums and toured extensively around the globe. Vishtèn are from Prince Edward Island in Canada, and play Acadian folk music – a precursor to cajun music, mixed with French Canadian and Celtic influences. Here's a link to the event: https://goo.gl/n4kGxX

Declan O’Rourke is a critically acclaimed Irish singer songwriter who has worked and performed with many of the world’s top artists, including Snow Patrol, Glen Hansard, John Prine, and the Transatlantic Sessions in an award-winning career that has seen him release 5 studio albums and tour across the globe. “Declan writes the sort of classic songs that people don’t write anymore, that sound like they’ve been around forever… Listen to Galileo, which is possibly the greatest song written in the last 30 years.” – Mojo Magazine. “Since Kyabram is an album I will listen to for the rest of my life and will probably never tire of." – BBC Radio. *** Nominated for 3 Meteor Music Awards (Ireland)

Vishtèn, French Canadian powerhouse trio Vishtèn are making their first visit to New Zealand, bringing their upbeat infusion of traditional songs, built on a bedrock of driving foot percussion, fiddle, piano, step dance, and accordion. The group is a leading exponent of Acadian music, which is the ancestor of today’s Cajun music, and is centered in the French-Canadian regions of New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. “They’re one of the few groups in the world playing Acadian music, and they’re absolutely the best.” – Trad Connect.
