Treble by the Bay (2023 program)

Celtic music & dance
Bandshell stage / 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Treble by the Bay is a Celtic music and dance group based in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. We perform a broad selection of Irish, Scottish, and Canadian styles, linking historical traditions to modern choreography.

Their members have a wide range of music, song, dance, and theatre training, and they are brought together by their love of making music and dancing together and the joy of sharing these living traditions with an audience.

The traditions they perform include Irish sean-nós dance (the oldest style of Irish dance), modern Irish step dance, Irish set dance, Scottish Highland dance, Scottish country dance, Hebridean dance dating back to the early 19th century, Cape Breton step dance, and a Quebecois waltz clog. They  delight in showing how these various traditions are linked and have evolved across time and as they moved from one region to another.
