Glengesh is the fresh new traditional Irish sound of Ireland in the Philly area! Featuring Rosaleen McGill, Tim Buchanan & Ryann Lynch.

Rosaleen McGill has been singing for as long as she can remember. Her father, Jim McGill hails from Ardara, County Donegal and instilled a love of Irish music, dance and culture in her from infancy. Rosaleen has been deeply involved with the Ceili Group Cultural Society since childhood, sitting on the board for years as well as a festival and event chairperson. Rosaleen began singing Irish ballads as young as 7, performing for the first time at the request of Frank Malley for the first Singers Night as a teen. Rosaleen went on to sing at weekly session at the Plough, joining forces with Tim and learning the ukulele in recent years to accompany herself. Rosaleen has performed for great Irish musicians such as Finbar Furey, Karan Casey, Niamh Parsons, Altan, Solas, Beoga, Joanie Madden and Gabriel Donohue as well as local bands like Blackthorn, The Hooligans, The John Byrne Band, and the Bogside Rogues. Most recently she was asked to sing the National Anthem with Glengesh for the Phillies! You can catch Rosaleen on Tuesday nights singing covers and Irish songs on the ukelele at Fergie's pub or around town with Glengesh performing local gigs.

Born and raised in Upper Darby, PA, Tim Buchanan began taking guitar lessons from local John McGillian at age 15. Not soon after he was attending the traditional Irish music sessions throughout the Philadelphia area. Tim has a wide range of influences that span the traditional and folk music worlds. Tim has been performing with Rosaleen McGill and Glengesh since 2010 and can be seen playing solo and with various groups throughout the City of Brotherly Love.

When Ryann Lynch was 10 years old she tried to enjoy playing the violin and learned what it meant to read classical sheet music. This learning experience was a struggle which culminated in a letter grade of F (not for fantastic) on an exam about note values and time signatures in sheet music. She was ready to smash the violin to pieces, but luckily her Mom had a much better idea and called up Kathy DeAngelo who taught Ryann to learn tunes by ear, no sheet music required. So thanks to Mom's quick thinking and Kathy's love of Irish music, Ryann fell in love with the sound of the Irish too. Fast-forward a bit and Ryann never let go of music. You can find her singing and playing fiddle with Glengesh, the folk rock group "Black Horse Motel," and she dabbles in progressive bluegrass music with the group "HogMaw". She has a bachelor's degree in music technology from Drexel University and a master's degree in music therapy from Drexel University's Creative Arts in Therapy Graduate Program. As a board-certified music therapist (MT-BC) She has specialized in Alzheimer's and Dementia Care for the past 7 years.
