Ireland's history is ancient and complex, but the connecting fibers throughout time have always been words, beautifully arranged words. Whether in the native tongue or the language of the occupier, the Irish are known for weaving words into lyrical and introspective stories, poems, and songs, works that evoke a powerful range of emotions from irrepressible humor to overwhelming sadness, resilience, and defiance. In honor of Saint Patrick's Day, this program will explore those words as they have been used to record the "terrible beauty" of Ireland's history, from the ancient magic people, to the Celts, to the patron saint himself, to the countless invasions and rebellions, to eight centuries of English rule, to the Great Hunger that killed millions and drove millions more into exile, to revolution, division, civil war, independence, and the seemingly endless "Troubles," and to the joy of being Irish. This multimedia program will feature actor and vocalist Michelle Duffy and the music of Faire May, with readers of stories and poems.

Presented by Sean Duffy and Michelle Duffy.
