If you listen to the narratives and themes of Irish folk music you’ll hear that most of it revolves around the heartache and struggles—and the causes—of oppression, displacement, and immigration. While the sound of the music and particular turn of phrase of the lyrics may be uniquely Irish, the circumstances are, unfortunately, increasingly universal.
The world is now facing unprecedented refugee migration challenges. Irish Americans owe it to the newly-arriving generations to respond like we are receiving our own ancestors.
These are the songs and stories of Irish immigrants and refugees.
If you are visiting this site to find out more about how to support Immigrants and refugees, there are a few ways to do so. One way is to buy Turf Fire Liars music. 100% of the money raised by sales of this project will go to immigrant and refugee aid agencies. In this initial phase of the project our target recipient is UNHCR.
If you wish to give directly to the UNHCR, or learn more about the programs they offer please visit: (https://www.unhcr.org/)
To be completely clear, we do not officially represent, nor do we speak for UNHCR. We are just another advocating voice trying to raise money for their cause in a musical way.
