Cry of a People Gone - Irish Musicians in Chicago 1920-2020


A great  social history insight to the musicians who made Chicago their home from 1920 to 2020 and painted the city proudly with their unique musical culture, a culture which nurtured their love of their country and their desire to keep the torch of Irishness burning so vividly so far away.

 Richie provides a unique literary portal into the lives of ordinary people who did extraordinary things in this , their adopted city.
