Join Mat Callahan and Yvonne Moore in The Songs of Freedom Tour, a celebration of the life and work of James Connolly, the Irish revolutionary socialist and musician martyred by the British government for his role in the Easter Rising of 1916.
The Songs of Freedom songbook was originally published in 1907 in New York and directed to the American working class. Lost for a hundred years, the songbook is at once a collection of stirring revolutionary songs and a vital historical document. The Songs of Freedom CD turns the enduring lyrics of Connolly into timely and rocking manifestos for today's young rebels. As Connolly himself urged, nothing can replace the power of music to raise the fighting spirit of the oppressed.
Please join editor and composer Mat Callahan, along with talented vocalist Yvonne Moore, to celebrate the new release of the 1907 James Connolly Songbook and the new Songs Of Freedom CD. Come indulge in the life, times, words, and contemporary relevance of James Connolly and sing the rollicking revolutionary anthems for a new generation of rebels in the 21st Century.
