Join us in marking the 10th anniversary of the Crossroads Irish-American Festival!
The journey began in 2004 with the vision that San Francisco, a "crossroads" with such an Irish past and present, is a natural location for a Festival exploring the arts, culture and experience of Irish-America.
In this first decade, we are proud to have hosted so many gifted writers, artists, musicians, storytellers, and to have explored some of the most pressing questions about Irish-America. We are also so proud to have begun the Irish Oral History Archive of the San Francisco Bay Area and the Crossroads Irish-American Writing contest.
We are so grateful for the support of our sponsors and the community. Without your help, none of this work would be possible.
On the cusp of our second decade, we look forward to the privilege of continuing to bring you programming, to sustain the Irish Oral History Archive of the San Francisco Bay Area and the Crossroads Irish-American Writing Contest.
Come join us at the Crossroads for the chance to experience and explore the best of the music, art and humanities of Irish-America.
Crossroads Irish Oral and Video History
The Crossroads Irish-American Festival directs the Irish Oral and Video History Archive of the San Francisco Bay Area. This project is focused on the creation of a comprehensive archive featuring the life histories of all generations of Irish and Irish-American communities in this region. In the initial phase of the project, we are reaching out to men and women who emigrated from Ireland during the 1930-1960s along with their Irish-American counterparts.
Archive of the San Francisco Bay Area
Take a moment to view a sample from the archive, found below. This is excerpt from a recording of John J. Moylan's life history. This 9 minute video clip is taken from a longer (2 hour) interview that took place in John’s home on April 11, 2011. The interview was conducted by Joan Cuddihy.
