That is where the school's Family Resource Center comes in, helping to bridge the language gap with translation services.
Just Added! Solas, one of this country's leading Irish-American bands, will be stopping by the KALW studios this Saturday for a live performance. Led by talented multi-instrumentalist Seamus Egan, Solas has been called "exciting" and "brilliant." Thistle & Shamrock calls Solas "Irish America's most influential band." Solas will perform songs from its latest CD "Shamrock City," a tale of immigration, tragedy, corruption, and discrimination based on the true-life story of Michael Conway.
