Rory Mcleod

Rory Mcleod is a rhythmic storyteller and multi-instrumentalist, telling unpalatable truths about broken hearts, social injustice in songs, that are percussive, bold, lyrical and deeply personal. His songs have an unexpected edge to them, accompanied by spoons, harmonica, guitar, trombone and-tap-dancing shoes.

An ex-circus clown and fire eater, Rory is a one-man-soul-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, bandora, Djembe-drum, harmonica, guitar, trombone and-tap-dancing shoes accompany the “rich, raw, deep and resonant” voice of this “singular and liberating performer.”

“Expect the unexpected.” Mcleod is a musical Gypsy, his eccentric melodies are infused within 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.”
