Cry Of a People Gone: Irish Musicians in Chicago – 1920–2020

Richie Piggott’s new publication Cry of a People Gone: Irish Musicians in Chicago, 1920–2020, documents the lives of Irish musicians, and significant milestones in the development of Irish music in his adopted city of Chicago.

Richie, originally from Cobh, Co. Cork, has been living in Chicago, USA for more than twenty years. Born into a family steeped in music, his own direction has led to a life-long interest in the collecting of Irish music books and manuscripts, and in the social history of Irish traditional musicians.
