An in-depth profile of the New York Irish band Black 47 as it wraps up 25 years together, examining the iconoclastic band's highs and lows, and its legacy.
Black 47 first played in the Bronx in 1989. The band's sound, a mix of Irish traditional, hip-hop and punk, was raw by all accounts. Twenty five years later, almost to the day, Black 47 played its final performance at B.B. King's on Times Square. Across those 25 years, an iconoclastic New York band found its voice.
