On Monday, March 13 at 6 PM, Irish humorist and folksinger Tom O'Carroll, will visit Nesmith Library to share From Tribe to Nation: A Musical Journey Through the History of Ireland! This presentation traces the history of the Irish people from the Stone Age to the present. Drawing on archaeological data, historical records, as well as music and song, Tom explores the broad social and cultural themes of conflict and identity that occur through the island's history. Throughout his presentation, Tom performs various songs, tunes, and little known anecdotes that bring to life the story of the Irish. Refreshments will be served.

Dublin-born folklorist, folk-singer, and instrumentalist Tom O'Carroll brings a wealth of stories, humor, wit, and history to his performances. He has played at concerts, festivals, colleges, libraries, and pubs all over the U.S. and Canada, as well as his native Ireland, including a stint for one month in Seoul, South Korea. Whether playing a plaintive air on the tin whistle, or singing and playing rousing traditional songs to the accompaniment of the guitar or the bodhrán (Irish drum), Tom will captivate all with his lively program about Irish culture.
