Roots in Ireland Project Redux
Jamie’s Roots in Ireland odyssey continues!
We’re seeing-in Bloomsday Ulysses Centenary Celebration stateside with BLOOMSDAY CHICAGO, a dramatical, comical, musical riff on Ulysses, featuring songs with John Erickson and me, Jamie O’Reilly. This two-night event pairs me with producer/writer/director J.R. Sullivan at Chief O’Neill’s Pub, Wed June 15 and Thurs June 16, and a formidable cast of actors, as we present a new program in the vibrant setting a real Irish Pub!
Roots in Ireland is a project tracing the roots of my cultural legacy, and Irish heritage. Part I, In Old Chicago explores the roots of my vocal style and my family’s Chicago Salon tradition. We visit the world of my Irish American relations: feisty activists, artists and writers, and the Irish literary revival in the early 20th century, and the period of James Joyce. This program debuted to a standing ovation in fall of 2021.
