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. “
