Ceili Rain Website
Many of the Songs on this station features Ceili Rain!
Ceili Rain is a celtic music influenced Syracuse, New York based band led by Bob Halligan, Jr, founded in May 1995. As the group’s founder Bob Halligan, Jr explains, in Gaelic, the word "Céili" (pronounced kay-lee) means "party", specifically one with live musicians, dancing, and general merriment for an all-ages crowd. "Coeli" is a form of the Latin word for "heaven". Rain is English, meaning downpour. Thus, according to Halligan, Ceili Rain is a "downpour of heavenly partiness."
I Saw Ceili Rain Perform at the "Run For Life" Banquet a couple of years ago at Sacred Heart Church in Homestead Florida. I couldn't believe these guys would come all the way from New York to the bottom of Florida to play.
To say the Least... They are great!
