Senior Happening in Livingston: "Paddy Has Gone for A Soldier"

The Livingston Public Library invites the public to the next installment of the 2019 Senior Happening series on Friday, March 15th featuring Mike Plunkett performing, “Paddy Has Gone for a Soldier”.  Mike will be dressed in Civil War uniform and will play the guitar, mandolin, and octave mandolin.

This program is a look at the Irish Brigade in the Civil War, which was made up of five Regiments; four from New York City and one from Boston. In story and song, Mike presents the tales of this Brigade from its start in 1861 to the final year of the War. The Brigade served in many battles such as Fredricksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. The tales and songs reflect the bravery and skill of the members of the Brigade. The program brings to light the cause the Irish fought for and the valuable part they played in the cause of the Union.

The Senior Happening is a monthly series that allows attendees (“Seniors” or otherwise) to socialize during the first part of the program (12 until 12:45 pm) by bringing a bag lunch, while enjoying desserts and coffee served by the Friends of the Library volunteers. The program and entertainment then begins at 1 pm.

Registration is required and may be done in person at the library; by telephone at (973) 992-4600; or online at www.livingstonlibrary.org. Livingston residents may register starting February 25th and other Essex County residents may register starting March 8th.

Senior Happening is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, and administered by the Essex County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs.
