Rory McLeod

Rory 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 saw the ubiquitous Rory McLeod on stage wowing the crowd as if it were his living room… everyone was dancing… Then some hours later that night we heard Rory singing more of his stories around a campfire, listening… chatting and joining in with everyone else on his trombone, spoons and harmonica.”
