Ex-circus clown and fire eater, Rory McLeod is a one-man-soul-band, and poet, with 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, deeply resonant voice of this singular, and liberating performer. Rory is a musical gypsy, whose melodies are infused with influences from Flamenco to country blues, through to Celtic, Eastern European and Calypso rhythms, and this show represents a fantastic opportunity to catch a truly charismatic and unique performer at close quarters in an intimate and atmospheric setting.
“I’ve travelled to look for work, to mend a broken heart, to be with someone I longed for. I’d travel to visit friends and on the way I’d make new ones, I’d roam because I was curious to see what was around the next corner, sometimes I travelled to follow the warmer weather and migrate… like the birds and the big whales and fishes do”.
