Event Details

Two Irish Immigrant musicians, the Black Donnelly’s, embark on a quest to set a Guinness World Record playing 60 shows in ALL 50 states in just 35 days! Racing against the clock, they examine the pursuit of the American Dream from an immigrant's perspective and how music connects us all. Will they make it? Band members Dave Rooney and Dave Browne aren’t just performers, after all, they’re immigrants too, setting off on an adventure to discover America. Along the journey, they explore the country's deep Irish heritage and their wider relationship to recent immigrants from across the world. In our time of introspection and reflection as a nation defined by immigrants, these two musicians offer the perfect opportunity to discover our collective national character. Does the American dream still exist? View This Is My Home Trailer 2019 | 90 mins
