The Jason O'Rourke Trio (Irlanda)

The Jason O'Rourke Trio (Irlanda)

Jason has been playing the concertina for thirty years. To date he has made six full-length recordings, two of which are solo projects. The latest album, The Northern Concertina was funded by a prestigious Arts Council NI Artist Career Enhancement (ACES) award. Jason has played across Europe, in the USA, Japan and India.
Jason’s second solo CD The Northern Concertina was released at the end of 2015 to critical acclaim. The recording features a selection of traditional Irish music, and features four new compositions by Jason. The album title reflects a particular style of concertina playing that Jason has developed, which draws on the rhythmic playing of traditional music in the North of Ireland, and particularly Belfast where he lives.
