Visit our Facebook Page to Watch

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day and in keeping with its humankind series, West Shore Community College invites you to a musical presentation and lecture by Professor Seán Henne.   Drawing on the strength of his family’s Irish musical tradition and his own experiences as an Irish studies scholar, Professor Henne traces themes of loss and reconciliation across several Irish folksongs.   Both the history of Ireland and the experiences of immigrant families like Henne’s are full of hardship and alienation.    But they are also full of hope and efforts at making real, positive, human connections despite the challenges, and that is the theme of the evening.
