Robert Burns Night, January 20th 2018

We will once again be having our Biennial Robert Burns Celebration! It will be held the evening of Saturday, January 20th, 2018. More details about tickets and all the fun we have planned will be coming at the beginning of the new year. But for now, save the date!

 

The Kick-off!

Saturday is coming! That’s when we officially kick-off the 30th Anniversary Tour at McGirk’s Irish Pub on April 29th. There will be a full-band performance at 5pm, but also smaller performances throughout the afternoon. Plus the band will be helping the staff serve and bartend from 1pm-4pm and 6pm-9pm while in tartan kilts! And we’ll have some limited-edition merch on-hand as well. Come have fun with us as we kick this celebration off properly. See you there!

30th Anniversary Tour

Who doesn’t love a great party?! In celebration of our 30th Anniversary, BC Celtic wants to not only celebrate, but have multiple celebrations and spread the love across the community to some of the establishments that have been our biggest supporters during these 30 years. Starting this month we’ll have festivities at these locations, with the grand finale occurring at the BC Celtic Music Festival in August!

More details on the events at each venue will be coming, but for now, here’s the schedule so you can save the dates…

 

News Channel 34 Special on BC Celtic, March 15 & 16

We hope everyone is safe and warm as Stella has dropped several inches of snow across the Southern Tier. As crews continue to clear the roads for safe traveling and as you may find yourself at home this evening, turn on News Channel 34 and check out the special report on Broome County Celtic Pipes and Drums! We’ve been informed it will be a two-part special airing tonight at 6pm and 11pm (part 1), then tomorrow night at the same times (part 2). Then join us Friday as we spend St. Patrick’s Day at several local venues!

Parade Day 2017

Thank you so much to everyone who joined us for the Great Guinness Toast! But we’ve only just begun. Parade Day is this Saturday. We’ll be kicking off the Friday before Parade Day with evening stops at the AOH, The Beef and the Binghamton Firefighters Pre-Parade Day Party. Then on Parade Day, we lead the Parade at 1:30pm, perform at Seton after 3pm, then we’ll be making stops at Abel’s, The Old Union Hotel, the Parade Day Party at St. Patrick’s Church, and McGirk’s Pub.

Please take a look at the Binghamton Firefighters Pre-Parade Day Party flyer, and the raffle info for the BFD Benevolent Association, if you would like to participate.

Rest up this week and see you this weekend!

St. Patrick’s Day with BC Celtic!

St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow and what better way to spend it than with BC Celtic! So we’ll be hitting some spots around town ALL day.

Our evening events start with parading through Wegman’s at 5pm, then performances at Binghamton University at 6pm, South City Publick House at 7pm, and McGirk’s around 7:50pm (before the Reveler’s performance). Earlier in the day we’ll be making some small stops at the Doubletree and a local elementary school, then we’re over to the Colonial at 2pm and possibly other spots downtown. So we’ll be all over and have something for all ages. You can also follow our list of events over at BingPop.com.

Until tomorrow…
