THE IRISH IN AMERICA traces three centuries of Irish immigration to America through the music of their homeland and the rich musical heritage they contributed to our country. With ballads, airs, sprightly reels, a nod to the renowned Irish sense of humor and especially their acclaimed skills on traditional musical instruments Suzanne and Jim chronicle the Irish-American experience.
Performing on flute, guitar, 5- string banjo, penny whistle and courtship dulcimer the duo has crafted a delightful idyll of historic music.
It has been said if all the history books were destroyed the story of the Irish would still live in their songs and ballads. The charms of the Irish dwell in tender melodies that will touch the heart, happy-go-lucky limericks that tickle the funny bone and haunting laments that long for the green fields Erin.
