From the Auld (Old) Sod to the New Prairie: Songs of Irish Immigration in Illinois

A Road Scholar Program by Lee Murdock

Weaving music with stories, Lee Murdock presents a compelling story of Irish immigrants in Illinois. As they came to America to build their new lives in a foreign land, they were also essential hands in building the canals, railroads, and towns that became Illinois and America. Both traditional ballads and modern historical songs are featured in this illuminating presentation.
