Since their highly anticipated debut in early 2017, Rathmore has quickly established themselves as a Celtic rock band that audiences of all ages can enjoy. The band’s contemporary take on traditional Celtic tunes is one of the many ways they create a family friendly soundscape, combining time honored music tradition with their original take on the genre.
Band members, Mike Urness (guitar & vocals), Matt Willis (bagpipes, flute, whistle & vocals), Gary Thorne (bass & vocals), and Matt Thompson (drums) bring their combined years of talent, expertise and passion to create new sounds using beloved traditional tunes. Helping to showcase their talents is the irresistible charm of such tunes as “Molly Malone” and “The Ferryman” which can be found on their 5-song EP, Mooncoin, (available on Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Spotify) which also features the jig by the same name.
