22-02-2019 12:00:00 22-02-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Ireland and America | 7:30 PM Ireland and America – A History in Song by Larry Kirwan combines Kirwan's 25 years of experience leading Black 47 with his parallel careers as playwright, author, journalist and radio host. Through a mix of storytelling, acting, and singing, Irish and American history come roaring to life on stage. The band explores the roots of Irish/British conflict with such Black 47 standouts as "James Connolly" and "The Big Fellah" (Michael Collins) and places special emphasis on emigration to the USA and life in New York's Five Points as Irish immigrants and African-Americans create modern pop culture and tap dancing. Kirwan will also weave in songs from his acclaimed musical, Hard Times, and will conclude the evening with "Funky Ceili", "40 Shades of Blue" and other hits from the rollicking side of the Black 47. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=342432 Schimmel Center Schimmel Center
