See You At The Hall - Susan Gedutis
See You at the Hall: Boston's Golden Era of Irish Music and Dance Author: Susan Gedutis Publisher: Northeastern University Press ISBN: 1555536107 softcover $20 When young Irish men and women arrived in the US in the fifties, they would meet to hear the familiar music from the old country. And the venues to hear these traditional tunes were the 'dance halls'. Susan Gedutis wrote about those dance halls days in her book "See You at the Hall - Boston's Golden Era of Irish Music and Dance." See You at the Hall brings to life the rich history of the "American capital of Galway" through the eyes of those who gathered and performed there. In this engaging look back at Boston's golden era of Irish traditional music, Susan Gedutis deftly weaves together engaging narrative with spirited personal reminiscences to trace the colorful dance hall period from its beginnings in the 1940s.
