Celebrating their 20th anniversary and last year on the road in 2014, Black 47 espouses an unblinkingly political and thoroughly Irish form of rock 'n roll, with songs covering topics from the Northern Ireland conflict to civil rights and urban unrest in contemporary New York. The genesis of Black 47's music dates all the way back to the dance halls of Five Points in New York City as the Famine Irish descended upon the city and helped create a whole new style of American music. Milwaukee Irish Fest is thrilled to welcome back Black 47 to this year’s festival.
