Celtic Rush is a group of six friends that have been making music together since 2012. We started as an open session and went from there. Since that time, we have performed in venues across Northeastern Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. We perform predominantly Celtic traditional music, but not always in a traditional manner! Join us for a song, or a hornpipe, or something with our own twist. Our members, and instrumentation, contribute to our unique sound.

Meet the Band


We call her MandoLisa, as she is our mandolin player. She also sings a tune or two for you. A woman of many talents, she also plays bodhran.


Meet our bassist, Donna. She also leads some songs, and harmonizes on others.


Whistling and singing, that's our Cathy.


We are so fortunate to have two guitarists. Mike plays the 12 string. He will also sing for you.


Our most prolific vocalist, he plays the 6 string, too.

Holly & Bob

Holly and her fiddle Bob are a team! Bob sings for you. (Be glad!)

Former Members


Jamie no longer performs with us, but we still see him at area sessions.


Allen (left) and Tim (center) participating in the Bonnie Knees contest.  Allen won! He was the heart of the band, and will always be missed.


One of our founding members, Brittany is a great fiddler. Pictured here in a fiddle duel with Holly. (Tie score!)  She has since moved to the Columbus area.
