It is with deep sadness that we mourn the loss of the great singer, songwriter, entertainer, comedian, radio personality, actor, voice over actor, Michael O'Reilly. Mike was an active member of Valley Bluegrass, and instrumental in the development of the Renfrew Bluegrass Festival, as well as MC for several other festivals and events. Our condolences go out to his wife Rose, son Rylan, daughter Devon, and his mother, and all who loved him - there were many.
