If It Wasn’t for the Irish and the Jews with Mick Moloney, Peter Quinn & Robert Sullivan
Tuesday, March 2, at 6:30 pm
Mick Moloney is a man of many talents — teacher, musician, and recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage fellowship — but perhaps his greatest gift to ethnomusicology has been his research into 19th and early 20th-century popular music.
If It Wasn’t for the Irish and the Jews sheds light on the unlikely collaboration between Irish and Jewish composers around the turn of the last century. Their efforts resulted in some of pre-Tin Pan Alley’s most popular ditties, as delightful today as they were when first written.
Join us as Moloney’s band performs some of these tunes and longtime friends Quinn and Sullivan (who sometimes sound like a Vaudeville act themselves) dive into this colorful history.
