Tribute to the Irish Brigade - Charlie Zahm Concert
If you love Irish Music or Civil War History---Join us in the theater! Journey in song and story through the Civil War guided by heroic Irish-American Capt. James Haggerty of the 69th New York State Militia, which so boldly fought in the First Battle of Bull Run in July 1861. Charlie Zahm, renowned traditional balladeer and multi-instrumentalist, recreates in first-person the Donegal immigrant, who rose through the ranks of the state militia system in New York, and took the field knowing full-well he and his men were watched by both the United States (the land of his adoption) and Ireland (the land of the exile’s birth). Haggerty gave his last full measure of devotion to his adopted land at Bull Run, and this program features Zahm as our guide Haggerty leading the audience through the heroic story of the Irish Brigade, formed in part by the men of the old 69th, as they covered themselves in glory in every major battle of the Army of the Potomac.
The concert will take place in the auditorium of the Roosevelt Community Center. There will be parking in both the front of the library and in the back. Our address is 464 S. Old Middletown Rd., Media, PA 19063.
