Our Story

We started The O'Rourkes because of our love of the music of Ireland, Scotland and the Maritime tradition.  We are an acoustic band featuring the guitar, banjo, Irish fiddle, double bass, and bodhrán.  As a result, our band is ideal for a wide variety of events and venues.   We are based in southeastern Pennsylvania and play throughout the greater Brandywine Valley.  

What Inspires Us

We are a family band of Celtic heritage.   The tunes we play are timeless classics that are lively, festive, and infectious.  The music speaks to the human experience.  We love the camaraderie we develop with our audiences.   Please come to see us and sing along, clap along, dance or simply just listen! 

Our Influences

Many of the songs we play have been recorded by legendary folk artists such as the Dubliners, the Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem, the Corries, as well as many others.  These songs appeal to people of all ages and backgrounds.  Our music is appropriate for all occasions.
