    Live at the Fleece: Rory McLeod

    Sunday 29th Sep, 8pm, £12
     
    A one man soulband, poet and storyteller, singing his own unique upbeat dance stories.
     
    A modern travelling troubadour using tap shoes, a cappella, harmonica, guitar, trombone, spoons, finger cymbals, bandorea, djembe and various percussion instruments!
     
    Rory has travelled the globe from Asia to the middle East from Gambia to Cuba, Central America, Australia, North America, Canada, Europe and other nooks and crannies of the earth. “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”.
     
    Rory comes toting a swag of new songs, Launching his very new album “GUSTO!”.
     
    Rory 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!”
     
    “McLeod is one of the most energetic, most generous performers I’ve seen.” : Doug Spencer, ABC Radio.
