Since their highly anticipated debut in early 2017, Dallas-based Celtic rock band, Rathmore has quickly established themselves as a group 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.

With close to 275 performances to his credit in 1997, Red McWilliams has taken the right steps to become one of the most recognized names in Celtic music in the south and southwest. Combining a percussive guitar with a rich baritone voice and a positive attitude has created the perfect blend of “entertainer”, the fact of which has been proven by being awarded “Celtic Entertainer of the Year, ’97” by the Celtic Heritage Society of East Texas and the “Johnny Hailstones Entertainer of the Year, ’97” from the Scottish Clans of North Texas, Ft. Worth.
