Chronicles of the Great Irish Famine: Declan O’Rourke in conversation with Professor Christine Kinealy

Join Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute, Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum and Irish Cultural & Sports Association of Southern CT for an evening of music and discussion with musician Declan O’Rourke and Professor Christine Kinealy. O’Rourke’s album “Chronicles of the Great Irish Famine” evokes the harsh truths of the Irish peasant’s life during the potato blight of 1845 to 1852. Few songs about the Famine were ever written and “Chronicles” released in 2018 is a cathartic response to the erasure of the blight from cultural consciousness. Renowned Famine historian, Christine Kinealy, will join O’Rourke in a conversational journey between music, history, and cultural impact.
