Ranger Ron

EMAIL

Ranger Ron has been proud to be a KAFM programmer since 2008, hosting “Cry of the Celts” on alternate Mondays.  Leaning toward the more traditional end of the Celtic music spectrum, Ranger Ron enjoys rooting out the “back story” behind many of the tunes and songs he plays on his programs: why does that tune have that odd title?  What historical event inspired that song?   
 
Ranger Ron’s expresses his passion for history in many ways in addition to be a host of “Cry of the Celts.”  He is the vocalist for the Celtic band Fifth Reel, and also plays hammered dulcimer, and bodhran.  As a contra dance caller, he shares an American dance tradition that reaches back to our colonial days. 
 
“It’s an honor to share this music that still has the power to reach through the centuries and move us today.”
