Album Notes
The long-awaited second solo album from the Belfast concertina player contains a wealth of new and traditional Irish tunes. It features some of Ireland's most talented musicians: Tim Edey and Stevie Dunne on guitars, Teresa Clarke on fiddle and piano, and Seonaid Murray on tenor sax.

"Jason O’Rourke’s music has matured down the years into a fully cohesive and finely-tuned style; each note executed with pin-pricked precision. He stands on his own merits among concertina players in Ireland and elsewhere, and his music finds full maturity on this outstanding set.” John O’Regan, The Living Tradition.

"I’m reminded of Munster musicians such as North Cregg or The Four Star Trio, and even The Monks of the Screw, not just by the slides and polkas but by the general bounce and bravado in O’Rourke’s playing … there’s a spark and vibrancy to The Northern Concertina ..." Alex Monaghan, Irish Music Magazine.
