Scots-Irish and Irish Migration

The crossings from Scotland and Ireland during the 18th and 19th centuries inspired some of America’s great musical traditions. Carnegie Hall examines this musical legacy with Chris Thile and friends performing traditional Scots, Irish, and American folk music; Karine Polwart and Kaia Kater exploring Scottish and Canadian roots; and The Gloaming bringing a fresh view of Irish/Celtic music.

This is one of many migrations that will be explored in a citywide festival that also features events beyond Carnegie Hall, including public programming, performances, exhibitions, events at partner organizations, and more. Explore the complete festival listings.
