Four Shillings Short: A Samhain Concert at Bas Bleu Theatre

Are you looking for something to do this Halloween weekend? Join us at Bas Bleu Theatre for a special concert event with Four Shillings Short.

Four Shillings Short play Traditional music from the Celtic Lands, Medieval & Renaissance Europe, India and the Americas on a fantastic collection of world instruments: Hammered & Mountain dulcimer, Mandolins, Renaissance Woodwinds, North Indian Sitar, Recorders & Tinwhistles, Banjo, Guitar, Charango, Psaltery, percussion, vocals & even a Krumhorn.

The Celtic bonfire festival of Samhain, also known as Féile na Marbh (the Feast of the Dead), marks the end of harvest, the Celtic New Year and the beginning of
Winter. It is traditionally celebrated at the end of October and beginning of November. Samhain is Irish-Gaelic for ‘the Summer’s end’. A Samhain Concert
brings together music, poetry, folklore and stories linking our modern day harvest celebrations and customs with this ancient bonfire festival.

Join us Sunday 10/30, and Monday 10/31 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $25. We hope to see you there!
