Help Black 47 Celebrate Their 21st Birthday at Connolly's in NYC, Saturday, November 20

Celebrate with Black 47, leaders of Celtic Rock

Black 47, leaders of Celtic Rock, will celebrate their 21st birthday at Connolly’s on Saturday, November 20. Located at 121 W. 45th Street in NYC, make sure you catch it because Connolly’s won’t feature Black 47 again until New Year’s Eve!

Black 47 has been an influential segway for other Irish-influenced bands such as Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys. Their song, “Big Fellah,” was featured on last week’s episode of Sons of Anarchy on FX for three uninterrupted minutes. In addition, Black 47 leader Larry Kirwan co-hosted a national pledge campaign with Laura Savini at Music of Ireland, Welcome to America on PBS.

Kirwan also provided all the vocal backing for the performance of Carrickfergus on Martin Scorcese’s Boardwalk Empire “Nights in Ballygrant” episode.

Black 47’s album, Trouble in the Land, has been voted “top Irish-American album of the decade” by

The band has been profiled in most major publications, as seen in some of the most popular magazines and newspapers in the U.S. as well as appearing on Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien’s late-night shows.

Help celebrate with Larry Kirwan (on guitar and vocals), Geoffrey Blythe (saxophones), Fred Parcells (trombone), Thomas Hamlin (drums), Joseph Mulvanerty (uilleann pipes and various flutes), and Joseph “Bearclaw” Burcaw’s funk/R&B magnetic stage presence as they embark upon 21 years of influential Celtic Rock!

Be sure to pick up Black 47’s new compilation CD, Funky Ceili – The Party Songs, in Feb. 2011.
