About Us

Welcome to the online home of Wakefire, Michigan’s most dynamic Celtic Rock band.

Start with a dose of Irish and Scottish music, throw in some pop culture and modern video games, add a bunch of Americana and folk and shake it up with an addition of Eastern European and World influences and you start to get an idea of our sound.

We seek to revitalize traditional Irish music with a modern approach. The six members of Wakefire blend our talents to create a fun and unique sound.  Jared and Nessa provide our main lead vocals, Paul brings a raft of instruments to add unique touches to songs.  Ron lays down powerful accordion riffs and banjo licks.  Our rhythm section rounds all of this out with Haley on drums and Russ on bass combining to put the boom into our heavier take on Celtic, Folk and Americana music.

Our First CD is Complete and Available to the Public!
