BCMFest Description

BCMFest - Music Festival in Boston.

Since 2004, Scottish, Irish, and other Celtic communities across New England have flocked to the annual BCM Fest (Boston Celtic Music Fest) in Cambridge, Massachusetts. BCMFest takes place each year on a January weekend at popular cultural institutions and clubs in Boston like Club Passim, First Parish Church, and The Atrium.

With over one hundred performers, the BCMFest showcases performances by Celtic dancers, musicians, and storytellers. At the Kick-Off Concert, Boston’s Celtic composers perform some of their best works. Past performing musicians at the Kick-Off Concert include artists like Amanda Cavanaugh, Katie McNally, and Eric McDonald.

The BCMFest also features the annual Boston Urban Ceilidh, a dance party and workshop for dancers of all levels. Watch and learn Cape Breton dance, Irish Set, and more from performers like the O’Shea Chaplin School of Dance and Emerald Rae.

The Day Festival at the BCMFest offers families stories and family-friendly performances by a broad range of Celtic artists like Carraroe, the Boston Scottish Fiddle Club, and Liz Hanley. After the dancing, stories, and music, the BCMFest ends with the annual Finale Concert. The Finale Concert features dance and musical performances by groups like Highland Dance Boston and the Boston Comhaltas Music School.

Tickets to BCMFest range in price depending on the activities selected. Tickets to the BCMFest Kick-Off Concert cost about $25 per person, the Boston Urban Ceilidh tickets cost about $15 each, Day Festival tickets cost about $15, and tickets to the Finale Concert cost about $15 per person.

For a discount on the Day Festival and Finale, opt for the Combo Pass for about $25 each. After enjoying so many Celtic cultural performances, top it all off with a tall glass of Irish stout or single malt scotch at the Irish bars nearby in Cambridge.
