In 1993, Black 47 changed Irish-American music irrevocably when it burst onto MTV with its hit single, "Funky Ceili." Taking its name from the darkest year of the Irish Potato Famine, the band's music, though often based on traditional melodies, is laced with rock, reggae, hip-hop, New Orleans second line, and modern jazz, while songwriter Larry Kirwan uses influences as varied as Yeats, Joyce, and Dylan to fashion his dramatic, cutting-edge lyrics.
