Jamie SongNotes features “The Last Rose of Summer.”
On International Women’s Day, during Irish History Month, Jamie offers this song as the unthinkable goes on: war rages in Ukraine. Russia, the oppressor offers no mercy. The men stay and fight. Women and children seek safety.  Who will bury the dead? The Irish, too, suffered at the hands of the oppressors for centuries. Their bold, courageous spirits rebounding time and again. Their music, art and literature our solace and inspiration.
