Music of Ireland

February 26 | 7 pm

2010, 90 minutes
Directed by Phillip J. Marshall

Music of Ireland tells the definitive story of Irish music in America, focusing on the Emerald Isle's greatest musical exports, their influence on America and the music's global impact. Clannad's Grammy Award-winning singer, Moya Brennan, hosts and conducts intimate interviews that weave a thread of connections and themes, both past and present, that link Ireland's unique and sizable contribution to both the music world and the creative arts—from rock to folk, country to classical, dance, film, and literature. Revealing stories include Pete Seeger's discovery of Irish music, Bob Dylan educating Bono on the Clancy Brothers and the McPeake family, the inspiration behind Van Morrison's music and lyrics, Riverdance's beginnings, The Chieftains' early days, Sinead O’Connor and so many others. Never-before-seen performances by many of these artists and a complete inside look at Irish music and its deep-rooted connection to America. 

Music of Ireland originally aired on PBS in two parts in 2010.

Join us for an artist talk with the filmmakers and a live performance after the film.
