An incredible ex circus clown and fire eater, now a one-man soul band, poet and storyteller. A modern travelling troubadour using tap shoes, acappella, harmonica, guitar, trombone, spoons, finger cymbals, bandorea, djembe and foot operated percussion!
Having travelled all around the world, this is certainly not one to miss!

Edinburgh Festival Street Busker Of The Year in 1985.
'Rory is a dynamic live performer - never still or silent, his shows radiate energy. All this dynamism does not obliterate his songs which are always thought-provoking and well crafted. Get hold of one of his albums and come and see one of the folk circuit's greatest live performers' (Venue magazine, Bristol UK).
