Larry Kirwan, leader of Black 47 for 25 years, will return to BB King's on St. Patrick's Day. He will front a band formed especially for the evening comprising of Coty Cockrell (piano) Deni Bonet (violin), Rene Hart (double bass) and Thomas Hamlin (drums). They will perform and reinterpret Kirwan's Black 47 classics, songs from his critically acclaimed musical, Hard Times, new compositions, along with a riveting version of Heroes that transposes the action from Berlin to Belfast that he once discussed with David Bowie. As befits a Kirwan show, there will be lots of improvisation, social agitation, uproar, and hilarity.

Kirwan's life and his years with Black 47 is being celebrated in the movie, Fanatic Heart, which will premiere in NYC in March. He is host of Celtic Crush on SiriusXM and writes a bi-weekly column for The Irish Echo. A renowned playwright, novelist, political activist, and president of Irish American Writers and Artists, surprise guests from these worlds will make appearances. He will be joined onstage by his son, the hip-hop artist, Rory K. His favorite Celtic band, Lia Fail Pipes and Drums will play before the show and an extra-special guest will soon be announced.

This is an All Ages show designed to keep the party going after the St. Patrick's Day Parade. Doors at 6pm.
