From the Auld Sod to the New Prairie: Songs of Irish Immigration in Illinois
Weaving music with stories, Lee Murdock presents a compelling story of Irish immigrants in Illinois. As the Irish came to America to build their new lives in a foreign land, they were also building the canals, railroads, and towns that became Illinois and America. Both traditional ballads and modern historical songs are featured in this illuminating presentation. 1:30 at Newberry Library 60 W. Walton, Chicago, IL.
