Mission Statement

The SOUTHWEST CELTIC MUSIC ASSOCIATION
was formed to study, perform, promote and preserve traditional Celtic music, dance and culture in the Southwest.

The word "Celtic" refers to the culture that developed in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany, Galicia, and the Isle of Man. Much of the traditional music and dance that has evolved in the United States and in
many other English-speaking countries in the last 250 years has developed from Celtic origins.

Description

The SCMA is the organizer of the North Texas Irish Festival held at Fair Park in Dallas on the 1st weekend of March each year.

The SCMA attempts to increase public awareness of the rich cultural heritage of the Celts and its enduring efforts on our own culture as found in the United States. The SCMA sponsors concerts, music and dance workshops, provides referrals for entertainers, organizes regular sessions, and supports other cultural associations with similar purposes.

Through its Scholarship Fund the
SCMA contributes up to $600 annually to young musicians and dancers to help them in their chosen activities.
