Overview

Annie Burke-McNulty and her two children, Pete and Eileen, played, sang, and danced their way to becoming the most famous and beloved musical family in America for more than three decades. In 1977, Eileen and her daughter Patricia gave Mick unfettered access to the extraordinary family archive of recordings, photographs, and other memorabilia from 1930 through the early ‘60s, and his presentation, richly illustrated with these visual images and audio recordings, tells the McNulty’s amazing story, from the modest beginnings in rural Roscommon to the Brooklyn Academy of Music, where they began their performing journey in the United States.
