Meet Bob Halligan, Jr. Of ‘Ceili Rain’ – 50 Musicians In 50 Days

photo: (Bob Halligan, Jr.) Ceri Herron

Bob Halligan, Jr. is the epitome of a rags to riches story, starting life in an orphanage to becoming one of the most respected songwriters in the business and that’s just the tip of the musical iceberg of who this S.U. prof is and what he’s accomplished. His nationally-acclaimed Irish Rock baby ‘Ceili Rain’ that he birthed almost 20 years ago is on it’s way through town again for this St. Pats season and we snagged him for a convo about the band and his life besides. Eavesdrop and learn what exactly is just a short drive down the Thruway.
