Mary Beth Bonner Ryan has been a professional vocalist for over 30 years in and around the Philadelphia area.

Originally from SW Philly she started cantering Mass and singing in choir at a young age. Mary Beth has sung at many local weddings & funerals, specializing in adding an Irish touch. Her father Knute Bonner passed down his knowledge and tradition of Irish singing, so “Mary Beth & Friends Irish Band” formed over 20 years ago.

Along with her husband Thomas, they have raised their 3 children here in Havertown and are so delighted that an Irish Festival is finally happening here! Sit back & enjoy hearing this unique blend of soul-full Philly sound, mixed with her Celtic powerful vocals.
