The Irish in Boston
With fiddle, bodhran (Irish drum), banjo, flute, guitar, and bagpipes, Nancy and Calum Bell tell the story of Irish immigrants in Boston, weaving in their songs and poems of work, humor, protest, longing for home, and longing to feel at home in the New World. In addition to providing a rich connection to history curriculum, this program serves as a starting point for meaningful discussions on culture, race, prejudice, and immigration.
