The Celtic Society of the Monterey Bay was formed to encourage an awareness of all aspects of the Celtic culture with a special emphasis on the rich musical tradition. The Society sponsors sessions and gatherings at least two times a month where many of the fine local musicians perform in an informal setting and all are welcome to come along to enjoy the music and meet others with an interest in all things Celtic. The Society also arranges concerts by internationally renowned performers of traditional music.
