“The Black Irish Band’s new folk-Americana CD, From the Forest, is a musical journey into the lives of those that work in the national forest. Band songwriter Patrick Karnahan, who was employed with the forest service from 1978-1993, composed ten of the selections on the album. Three of his compositions (“Into the Fire”, “The Ballad of John Muir,” and “Smokey”) have been chosen by the Smithsonian Museum to appear on their recording label as part of their CD celebrating the forest service. This Millennium Stage performance will mark the Washington D.C screening of The Black Irish Band’s first music video of “Into the Fire.” The video was co-produced by the forest service to honor the men and women who fight fires. Most of the live scenes were shot on location in the Stanislaus National Forest, and over 40 forest service firefighters are featured.”

    The Black Irish Band - The 25 Year Anniversary Show Hailing from the historic Gold Rush Country of America, the members of the Black Irish Band have a musical style that is as timeless as the rugged landscape of the west. The music is a tribute to the people whose lives were spent building the world we now take for granted. The band has a large compliment of traditional maritime and railroad music, as well as ethnic tunes in their repertoire. They excel at Irish & Scottish, Italian, and American folk music with an assortment of original songs and traditional western ballads. The bands musical style captures the spirit of the immigrants of this land, the men and women who tamed the Wild West
