SONGS OF EMIGRATION: Storytelling Through Traditional Irish Music: Join us for a toe-tapping evening of traditional Irish music and storytelling with Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki.

Through traditional music Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki relays some of the adventures, misadventures, and emotions experienced by Irish emigrants. Jordan will discuss the historical context of these songs, interspersing their stories with tunes from Ireland that made their way into New England’s musical repertoire, played on his fiddle or guitar.

Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki is an award-winning fiddler who grew up playing dances and folk festivals around New England. His lifelong passion for history helps bring to life the traditional music around which he built his career.

Open to the public, this program is made possible by a grant from the NH Humanities Council and the Friends of the Kimball Library.  Join us on Monday, March 6th, at 6:30pm.  Be prepared to hum along!
