WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Black 47, named for the worst year of Ireland's Great Potato Famine, is a band comprised mostly of either Irish expatriates or the descendants of Irish immigrants. Based in New York City, the group plays a unique blend of traditional Celtic music, rock 'n' roll, rap, hip-hop, funk, and reggae. Lyrically, their street-wise songs contain stories about Irish-American culture, as well as Irish revolutionary heroes such as James Connolly, Michael Collins, and Bobby Sands. Black 47 also tackles sociopolitical issues like racism with equal measures of humor, anger, and wisdom.
