The Irish music scene here in San Francisco is very active. There are seisiúns nearly every night of the week, and with that much going on there is certainly something for everyone.

Since 2002 we have been hosting a singing seisiún. The first one had seen about a dozen people in attendance, and it has been growing ever since. We are delighted to have some very talented people attend this, and we are treated to stories (in Irish and English), sean nos singing and just great tunes. This event is happening on the first Friday of nearly month, hosted by members throughout the Bay Area. Check our singing seisiún page for locations.

San Francisco is also home for many fine Irish Bands, and we have had the good fortune to have most of them play for our dances and ceílís. Several bands play for us at The Plough and Stars and CCE Night at the United Irish Cultural Center on a regular basis including
Tipsy House, the Shannon Ceílí Band, The Emperor Norton Ceílí Band, The Crooked Road, and Banish the Dogs . These bands have been with us for a long time, and they play brilliantly.

For those who are looking to find a music instructor, we had a list of local instructors. While we can not recommend one over the other, we can say that they are all fine musicians and teachers.

As there are so many events and information about things going on here in the Bay Area we can not list them all. To this end, we have a collection of links that do a great job of keeping up on things happening in the area and beyond...
