Sorry folks, but all performances are currently on hold because of the novel Corona Virus. Please check this page occasionally to see when things get closer to normality.

But if you're desperate to hear Jamie perform and you're on Facebook, you might find him there! On April 24, Bosler Library put on a 40-minute concert of Irish music by Jamie. And there's a chance he might be performing another concert on Facebook before too long. Keep an eye on this page for details as and when they become available.
