Thread Name: John Reilly, traveller singer.
Subject: RE: John Reilly, traveller singer.
Someone once said of him, that if he had been born in any part of Europe except the British Isles he would have been made the centre of a National Folk Music Ensemble and been paid handsomely to go around the world representing his country at international festivals of culture.

As it was, he died alone, forgotten and in poverty.
