Description
 
Mick Moloney (au). This unique book tells the story of Irish immigration to America in words & lyrics, with an accompanying CD further illustrating the journey through song. The Irish-American folk & popular songs featured complement the text, highlighting issues immigrants faced & the social conditions they experienced from the 1700s to the early 20th century. The songs tell of the backbreaking task of survival in the New World; the battles waged for fair treatment & fair pay for the work done by these immigrants on railroads, on canals, & in mines, construction, & factories; the success that they ultimately attained in politics, business, & society; & their continuing influence on American life & culture. Mick Moloney has recorded over 40 albums of traditional music. Photos.
