Roots in the Garden Series summer dates & more

Music with Jamie O’Reilly, Vocals ~ John Erickson, Piano

“Today was just perfect all the way around.
Just the right start to see in-person music again.”

Sue Kessell, WNUR Folk Show

A Mid-May Note from Jamie
We have some very delightful events coming up, bringing the Roots in the Garden Series to backyard gardens and venues this summer and fall, with John Erikson on piano. Sunday, June 27, members of The Rogues are playing a set with us in bass player John Floeter’s lovely yard in Cary, (a few miles from where I grew up in Crystal Lake). Sunday, July 18, is our evening Soirée at Tre Kronor Swedish Bistro. Traditional Scandinavian foods, BYOB. We’ve scheduled our fall fundraiser at Chief O’Neill’s on Saturday, Nov 6. Come out and hear us, or bring us to your greenspace!  

Thanks to Judi Heikes, Iwona Biedermann and our generous patrons! -Jamie
