Cheer & Song: Hunt The Hare
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.
Kane Miller is Hunt the Hare’s formidable fiddler. He is a classically trained violinist and pianist who grew up playing violin in orchestras. In addition to Hunt the Hare, Kane has his own solo career as a singer songwriter. He thrives off the energy from a live crowd, especially when he’s perched on top of a picnic table or bass drum! Wherever Hunt the Hare plays, Kane’s dynamic fingering keeps toes tapping all night. Kane will also be the recording and mix engineer for the album.
Brendan Quigley is Hunt the Hare’s gifted guitarist. He grew up in a musical family, surround by East Coast fiddle music. Attending events like the Goderich Celtic Roots Festival and Leahy Music Camp have helped to shape his musical style. Like his mentor, Andy Webster, he plays in DADGAD tuning. Brendan’s strum is a driving force behind Hunt the Hare’s signature sound.
Frank Callaghan is the peppy percussionist and lead vocalist for Hunt the Hare. He grew up in a musical family and starting playing guitar and singing at a young age. He has a passion for well-crafted songs and is well versed in Stan Rogers’s masterpieces. Frank’s energy is the foundation of Hunt the Hare’s style.
Jonathan Berlingeri is the best bagpiper in the band – you can ask Kane who is a close second. He also plays the mandolin, whistles, and is sometimes allowed to sing. He grew up playing the bagpipes in the Legion 87 Pipe Band and is proud to pipe at Remembrance Day services to this day.
