By Memory Inspired: Mick Moloney's Songbook | "Pat Murphy of the Irish Brigade"

"Like a hero, he died for the land of the free / Far away from the land of Shillelagh." This episode of Songbook explores a musical legacy of the American Civil War, in which many newly arrived immigrants "from the land of Shillelagh" fought on the Union side. Here are Mick, Haley Richardson, and Brenda Castles with the folk anthem "Pat Murphy of the Irish Brigade."
