Add to Calendar 17-03-2012 17-03-2012 15 BLACK 47 St. Patrick's Day Shows 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. Long involved in the Irish Civil Rights Movement, Kirwin formed Black 47 in 1989 to give voice to ideas of freedom and cultural renewal. Through years of relentless touring, Black 47's signature eclectic sound, socially conscious lyrics, and exciting concerts have paved the way for other Irish influenced bands such as Flogging Molly and the Dropkick Murphys. After 2008's Iraq and 2010's Bankers & Gangsters, the band is currently celebrating its 21st year on the road with its latest compilation CD, Funky Ceili - The Party Songs, released in February 2011. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=104072 B.B.
