Bob Halligan Jr. may be super weird sometimes, but he’s beyond awesome in my book.
Who — you may be asking — is Bob Halligan Jr?
He’s the front man of one my favorite bands, Ceili Rain. The lads in this band call themselves a combination of Celtic and Pop and Rock with a very strong spiritual message. If you’ve never been to a Ceili Rain concert or listened to one of their CDs, you’re missing out big time. I have all of their CDs and have heard them live three times. Ceili Rain gets better with every listening. And when I listen to Bob Halligan Jr.’s lyrics, I alternate between laughing out loud and crying big, sloppy, emotional tears.
I’m subscribed to Bob’s youtube channel and have been watching over the past month as he’s been sharing news about the forthcoming Ceili Rain CD, Hymns & Hers. For this project, Ceili Rain is crowdsourcing and we can be a part of making it happen. I finally headed over today and made my gift and can’t wait to sport my new t-shirt and listen to my Bob Halligan Jr. signed CD. I’m extra partial to Ceili Rain’s drummer Bill Bleistine and am hoping for his signature on this one too!
To inspire you to get involved, I thought I’d share a musical sneak peek at one of the potential songs for Hymns & Hers, ripped today from Bob’s Youtube channel. This had better be on the CD, since I fell in love with it after one listening:
If you’re having an off day, treat yourself to this song. I guarantee it will lift your heart. Hey Bob Halligan Jr., if you’re reading this, I want this song on Hymns & Hers!!
