A performance of new & traditional broadside ballads about the 19th Century Irish-American gang leader & squatter colony chief. Known for his “caustic tongue and ready wit,” he was often stereotyped tabloid fodder for the newspapers of the 1800s. If you’ve ever seen the movie Gangs of New York, then this would be a musical accompaniment to the rogues, pimps, murderers, and thieves that inhabited New York City in the 19th century.
