The Philadelphia Ceili Group (PCG) is an all-volunteer, educational organization with an interest in Irish culture, founded in 1958 to preserve traditional ceili and set dancing. For many years, PCG has presented an ongoing series of concerts and instrumental workshops at the Irish Center, in the West Mount Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia. In 2012, the Center supported Irish Traditional Music: Influences from the West of Ireland. Highlights from this project included concerts by De Dannan, Kevin Burke and Cal Scott, Mick Moloney and Friends, Grainne Hambly and William Jackson, and Niamh Parsons and Graham Dunne.
