Aqus Celtic/Irish Music Session


Players Always Welcome

We have created an authentic traditional pub seisiun in Petaluma where seisiun-seekers can hear or play “comhaltas ceoltoiri” level traditional music in our area.  All interested players of Irish music welcome.

Once the seisiun players can get themselves started, all others can browse ways to learn Irish playing by ear.

While at Aqus, you can get our O’Petaluma Playlist — the 39 the most-played Irish tunes of local Bay Area seisiuns. Irish singers may offer to join future seisiun evenings, within the trad seisiun norms.

Some video of the player in Aqus

The “O’Petaluma Playlist”
These traditional jigs, reels, hornpipes and airs are the ones found most-often-listed on playlists around northern California, and probably the ones most trad Irish musicians hereabouts can play.
So these are good for starters.— either to learn or to get into familiar playing territory

Village membership offers social programs and connections as well as volunteer services including transportation, note-taking at medical appointments, friendly visits, computer help, and personalized referrals to community resources.


This is an online meeting, suitable for potential members (ages 50+), their adult children and volunteers.
