A few words from John on the show -
‘Welcome to the John Reilly and friends roots review. Roots music. It’s just another way of saying good old music that has survived the passing of time. folk, traditional, bluegrass, close-harmony, country. Whatever labels people have tried to stick to good music through the ages are irrelevant. It’s that song that touches something deeper, that makes ancient sense to your soul. The tree of music has deep roots which go back to these songs, conceived and sung around lonesome campfires, rain soaked ship’s decks, whispering mountain pines or dusty barren farmland they stand the test of time and keep our souls alive.Jjoin your host John C. Reilly and some incredible singers and musicians as they summon the spirits of the tree of song, from deep down in the roots. You just might feel better somehow’
Fionn Regan will support.
