Jamie O’Reilly Roots in Ireland, a video, a musical journey

Jamie talks about her musical journey and the inspiration behind the Roots in Ireland project.
With songs, photos and videos from her four decade career as a beloved ballad singer.

“I want to offer something concrete as a legacy, and find a good way to keep this journey going.  Rather than that this time be about sad memorials, I want to embody living history.  And that’s how the Roots in Ireland project came about. “

This video is dedicated to Bella, Winifred, and Michael
