Celtic Culture Club
Our mission is to develop a knowledge of and appreciation for Celtic culture, as it developed in Europe and has spread throughout the world. More than step dancing and bagpipes, Celtic culture is richly represented in literature, art, mythology and religion. While we will focus primarily on Irish and Scottish history and tradition, we can’t ignore the Celtic connections in Wales, Cornwall, Spain, and of course, the United States. Some statistics show that more than 50% of Americans trace some heritage to Ireland -- the Land of Saints and Scholars.
We will explore Celtic culture through family heritage exploration, music, film, food and field trips. Come learn about and experience the connection between celtic braid tattoos and the Vikings, Brigid and St. Bridget, the DropKick Murphy’s. You don’t have to be of Celtic descent to join us, you just have to have an appreciation for our proud heritage.
