Driven by hunger and desperation, they boarded dismal and disease ridden ships by the millions to make the long journey to America. In New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, St. Louis, and other cities, they toiled in factories, mills, and coal mines; on the railroads, in domestic and public service.

Tunes from American-born Irish musicians, songs of emigration, and vintage 78rpm recordings from the masters of traditional Irish music.
