Black 47 to Rock the Quick Center for the Arts St. Patrick's Day Weekend
Posted by Bradford Today   

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. — Celtic-rock and St. Patick’s Day cheer will be the scene when Black 47 rolls into the St. Bonaventure University community to rock the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts on March 19.  The free concert will be from 8 until 10:30 p.m. and is open to the public.

The newly established Fr. Mychal Judge Center is sponsoring the New York City band in honor of Fr. Mychal Judge, who perished during the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and was a fan of the group.

“The band was a favorite of his,” said Larry Sorokes, director of the Fr. Mychal Judge Center. “I thought it would be fitting to have them back to campus as we unveil the new center this semester.”

Black 47 played at St. Bonaventure a couple times in the 1990s, but has not been back since.  Black 47 has traveled the world over during the members 20 years together, paving the way for other Celtic-rock groups such as Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly.   The band has released 14 albums; most-recently Black 47 released “Bankers and Gangsters” alongside front man Larry Kirwan’s new novel “Rockin’ the Bronx.”

Kirwan was also a good friend of Fr. Mychal Judge, so it is fitting his band helps open the new center.  Kirwan wrote a song about Judge and also talks about him in his book “Green Suede Shoes.”

Kirwan will visit campus again for a “Rock and Read” acoustic session on April 21.

McCarthyizm, a Celtic-rock band from Buffalo, will join Black 47 in the Quick Center for the Arts March 19.
