The plays of Edward Harrigan (1845–1911) and their attendant songs written with David Braham (1838–1905) reflect a turbulent era in New York City, which was just emerging as the cultural and economic center of American life. This edition includes a generous selection of Harrigan-Braham songs drawn from plays depicting a variety of ethnic groups and written at the zenith of Harrigan's career. The music, texts, and introductory essay provide a clearer picture of a body of work that Charles Hamm has described as "the beginning of urban popular song."
