Artist's Description

It was believed that All Souls’ night was when the dead revisited their homes, so lit candles were left out to guide them and meals and wine were left as refreshment.

The night of Samhain, in Irish, Oíche Shamhna and Scots Gaelic, Oidhche Shamhna, is one of the principal festivals of the Celtic calendar, and falls on the 31st of October. It represents the final harvest.

It is still the custom in some areas to set a place for the dead at the Samhain feast, and to tell tales of the ancestors on that night.

Please come and listen to Lorenna sing All Souls Night
