The late Irish tenor's musical salute to America returns to public television. Frank Patterson celebrates the storied history of the country that welcomed his forefathers so many years ago through this Irish song and dance spectacular. Backed by a symphony orchestra and choir, "Ireland's Golden Tenor" performs a selection of traditional and contemporary songs. Special guests include Patterson's wife, Eily O'Grady, and her Irish Harp Orchestra, the mother/daughter violin duo of Geraldine O'Grady and Oonagh Keogh, and a cavalcade of Irish-American champion dancers in traditional costumes. Patterson recorded more than 40 albums in six languages, ranging from songs by Henry Pucell to Berlioz to popular international favorites and traditional Irish ballads, before his death June 10, 2000.
