Independent of Black 47, Larry Kirwan has produced two solo recordings, Kilroy Was Here and Keltic Kids. He also has published two books, Liverpool Fantasy and Green Suede Shoes: An Irish American Odessey. Kirwan has also recorded Kilroy Was Here and Keltic Kids as solo efforts.
He has written eleven plays and musicals, five of which are collected in the book Mad Angels. Liverpool Fantasy, his best known play, has been produced Off-Broadway and at the Dublin Theatre Festival. He has also written a novel version of Liverpool Fantasy, a memoir Green Suede Shoes and Livin’ in America, a collection of songs and stories.
His latest novel, Rockin’ The Bronx, has just been published. Kirwan hosts and produces Celtic Crush for SiriusXM Satellite Radio and writes a weekly column for the Irish Echo. In 1995 the NY Daily News named him one of the top fifty most interesting New Yorkers, several places ahead of Madonna. It would appear, however, that he has lost considerable ground to the blonde seductress. Nonetheless, while brooding on a comeuppance, he slaves away in cunning silence on Transport, a musical with book by Thomas Keneally, that will receive a workshop/performance at the Irish Arts Center, NYC in April, 2010.
