BCMFest (Boston's Celtic Music Fest) Session events are held the second Monday of every month at Club Passim to spotlight local Celtic musicians and singers.
BCMFest showcases Greater Boston’s best musicians, singers, and dancers from Irish, Scottish, Cape Breton, and other Celtic traditions. BCMFest hosts an annual weekend-long festival in January that features more than 100 performers. Throughout the year, BCMFest organizes the Celtic Music Cruise, Boston Urban Ceilidh, and monthly Celtic Sessions.
The mission of BCMFest is:
- To produce locally-based Irish, Scottish, and Cape Breton music and dance in an upbeat and friendly environment.
- To bolster appreciation for traditional Celtic music and dance among youth and the Greater Boston community.
- To support a living, changing tradition by encouraging cross-genre collaborations and innovations among dancers and musicians of all generations.
- To produce a variety of collaborative projects and performances for the Greater Boston community.
