The South Coast Rambler
Looking for some traditional Irish music for your event? Bill Reidy, whose ancestors originally came from Ireland's South Coast in County Kerry, offers an entertaining one-man show that includes traditional and contemporary Irish folk tunes, love songs, ballads, pub songs, and Celtic songs.
Bill sings while accompanying himself on acoustic guitar. His songs can bring a tear to your eye or can get you up to dance a jig!
In addition to Irish songs, Bill has an extensive repertoire of over 1,000 songs covering a wide range of genres, including Country, Folk, Oldies, Classic Hits, Standards, Blues and Old Time Gospel.
Bill Reidy's solo acoustic act is perfect for St. Patrick Day celebrations, Irish Pubs, Irish-American Organizations, Irish Events & Festivals, and any private party where Irish music, and other types of music, would be appreciated.
In addition to his solo acoustic act, Bill can also offer a trio, which includes second guitar, banjo, mandolin, percussion and back-up vocals. With the trio, Bill also plays penny whistle, low whistle and harmonica.
