They played more gigs at Shea Stadium than The Beatles, shut down the city of Hoboken, appeared

multiple times on Leno, Letterman & O’Brien, starred in a movie with their fans Matt Dillon and Danny

Glover, helped spring the Guilford Four and the Birmingham Six from British prisons, saved an Irish

immigrant church from the wrecking ball.

Anything else? Oh yeah, their CD IRAQ was the most popular with troops serving in Iraq, their song The

Big Fellah was featured for 3 minutes on Sons of Anarchy, they’ve played over 2500 gigs from pubs to

stadiums and released 14 CDs, their songs are used in hundreds of high school and college history and

political science courses, and they intend disbanding on Nov. 8th 2014, exactly 25 years after their first gig

in The Bronx. Then again, Black 47 has always done it their way.

Led by Irish author, playwright, and SiriusXM radio host, Larry Kirwan, Black 47 play a uniquely Irish form

of rock 'n' roll that touches on many social and political issues, and yet is never less than entertaining and

riveting. Black 47 earned their chops playing four sets a night in New York pubs. They gained national

attention for their first indie record before The Cars' Ric Ocasek produced their second album, Fire Of

Freedom which brought them mainstream attention with MTV favorites, Funky Ceili and Maria’s Wedding.

Through years of relentless touring the band’s signature eclectic sound, socially conscious lyrics and

exciting concerts paved the way for other Irish influenced bands such as Flogging Molly and The Dropkick

Murphys. A band of band leaders, Black 47 includes, Geoff Blythe (saxophones), Thomas Hamlin (drums),

Fred Parcells (trombone/whistle), Joseph Mulvanerty (uilleann pipes/flutes/bodhran) & Joseph “Bearclaw”

Burcaw (bass).

This legendary Irish rock band has left a lasting legacy and they intend going out with a bang. Their final

CD, Last Call, will be released in January 2014 and Black 47 will tour constantly until their final date in

New York City on Nov. 8th 2014.
