Toss the Feathers - History Through Music

The Irish folk group Toss the Feathers will take us on a musical journey, singing the old songs which tell stories about canal and railroad workers, soldiers, maids, and other characters. The immigrant experience is encapsulated in these songs, some laments, others Vaudeville hits, which illuminate the various experiences of the Irish in the Capital region.

This event is part of our Collars, Canals, and Conflagration Series, funded in part by Greenway Heritage Conservancy HRV, Inc.
