Hunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky road and all the way to Dublin Wack Fa Da Da Lee Rah!

Hunt the Hare is a modern Celtic group on a musical adventure and they would like to invite you along for the ride. Like the story told in The Rocky Road to Dublin, the song from which the band takes its name, it promises to be a moving and melodic journey.

Jonathan Berlingeri, Frank Callaghan, Kane Miller, and Brendan Quigley each bring different life experiences to the group, and they have come together to share their musical gifts in a high energy Celtic quartet that will keep your toes tapping all night.

With a variety of instruments including fiddle, bagpipes, guitar, and percussion, they play traditional Irish tunes, and a few modern hits, creating a contagious mix of music. From the first note to the last chord, Hunt the Hare creates a joyful noise that you don’t want to miss.
