Following the release of her third studio album “Tóraíocht Shonais” (Pursuit of Happiness), Irish storyteller and singer Helena Byrne comes to the University of St. Thomas with her new show “The Pursuit of Happiness.” Helena delves into the music, superstitions and folklore of Ireland, alongside incredible stories of Irish emigration through the ages, the Great Famine, traveling on the Titanic, the Irish in the Wild West, John F. Kennedy’s visit to Ireland and so much more. Join Helena on this journey through the Irish experience of emigration to the New World, the excitement, the tragedy, the hopes and aspirations for a better life.
