Celtic and East Coast Traditions

At Celtic Folk, we provide a supportive and encouraging environment to promote Celtic, Irish, Scottish, and East Coast music, song, dance, and culture.

Our clubs are now in an amplified, folk-concert format – where the audience gives its full attention to the performers. Most performers are local to the Calgary region although that is not a rule.

We will be experimenting with other event formats and a few other surprises to grow and support the music and culture locally.

Upcoming Events

Due to COVID restrictions and uncertainties, our in-person, live concert dates are on hold.

In the meantime, we are experimenting with bring virtual and online concert options. If they are successful, we will look at running a few more – including for local groups once the restrictions open up sufficiently. We hope you will check them out.

Virtual Concert – Music & Mischief

Celtic Folk is excited to co-present this virtual concert. This is a first for us. Hang onto your hats … champion Scottish & multi-style fiddler Mari Black and Nova Scotia/Cape Breton fiddler & piano player extraordinaire Troy MacGillivray are about to team up for an unforgettable, shenanigan-ridden duo musical adventure!

COVID-19: Important Notice For Past Ticket Holders

As most of you are aware, Brown Paper Tickets had pretty much been closed down because of COVID-19. As of today, they are still processing refunds. We have about 10 ticket holders that have not had their refunds processed according to Brown Paper Tickets. Updates are available here:


Note, we didn’t get the money either – we had requested refunds to everyone as soon as the COVID-19 closures hit.

Recently, we have confirmed that some ticket holders were able to get refunds (sometimes reluctantly) through their credit card companies since BPT is non-responsive.

We are as saddened by this turn of events as everyone else. The money all goes to putting on the concerts and paying musicians.

Hopefully, we can get back to the part we all enjoy, putting on live music. Stay well.
