The Brownington Ceilidh Club is a gathering place for good friends, good music, and good times. We invite everyone to join us for our house concert series as we welcome world-class musicians into our home for intimate performances and an unforgettable experience!
The Brownington Ceilidh Club began when our group of friends started getting together to play traditional tunes. In 2013, we held our very first house concert featuring the band “Cantrip”. Since then, our house concert series has grown to about one show per month.
Most of our events begin with a potluck – bring a favorite dish to share and stay for the concert or come just for the music. Either way, we look forward to seeing you!
