Dr. Noel Browne became Minister For Health in the Irish Coalition Government of 1948. He had no political experience but had a burning desire to eradicate the scourge of Tuberculosis that had killed much of his family. With his messianic drive he was well on his way to success when he introduced a Mother and Child Scheme that would have given free pre-natal care to Irish women and free health insurance to all children. However, he did not lay the groundwork with his party leader and ex-IRA Chief, Sean MacBride nor with Archbishop John Charles McQuaid, the autocratic leader of the Irish Church. Rebel in the Soul deals with the intense maneuvering of these three charismatic people and the ensuing political crisis that would change Irish life.

“Larry Kirwan is a rock and roll poet with a deep appreciation of his roots.” -Rosanne Cash

Based on Mr. Kirwan’s best-selling book, The History of Irish Music, Ireland-A History In Song is a magnum opus that has emerged as an amalgamation of Mr. Kirwan’s 25 years as the frontman of the Celtic Rock phenomenon Black 47 (also known as New York City’s House Band).

Larry Kirwan arrived on these shores and our stages with centuries of intrinsic musical mysticism, carved out a new genre of rock music, sold millions of records, played to hundreds and thousands of adoring fans – and – after 2,500 concerts in 25 years wrapped it up one night at BB Kings on 42nd Street in New York in a show so historical they are releasing a documentary of that night’s pandemonium this month.

Mr. Kirwan will be accompanied by Andrew Sharp on Uilleann Pipes, Flute and Fiddle.

On Wednesday, March 29, proceeding the show’s World Premiere, Mr. Kirwan will conduct a Master Class for the Bergen Community College Music Majors. The Master Class is at complete capacity states Peter LeDonne, the Director of Community and Cultural Affairs at Bergen Community College (400 Paramus Road, Paramus, NJ).
