Thread Name: Music of US Civil War & Irish Immigrants
Subject: Music of US Civil War & Irish Immigrants
I know there are some US Civil War folks out there in Mudcat world who may an interest in this show. I have a website with some quick info about the series, and the website is HERE.

Briefly, we will performing a series of songs and stories about the Irish immigrant's experience in the US Civil War - North and South. We are incorporating moving and stillimagery with the stage presentation. The show is primarily music-based, but the performers are in costume and the stage will be set appropriately as well.

I expect we will tour this show a bit over the next year, so if you have an interest or an idea about where/how we play it at a venue near you, please PM me. I can provide promo materials, including DVD of the performance.

Otherwise - I'd love to hear your feedback. It won;t make us a fortune, but it may earn its keep! It has been a labor of love.

We've researched quite a bit, and used songs and info from Mudcatter Kim C - we've used songs from David Kincaid - and others. Glad to talkj about research, if you an interest ...
