An Evening of Mythical Storytelling and Live Music

It’s the time of year for feasting and for gathering around a roaring hearth-fire to break bread with your nearest and dearest, and as the company gathers and tongues begin to wag, tales are told, and old grievances aired. “And as we come closer together, we start to remember why we stayed apart for most of the rest of the year, as the biggest fights always follow the tastiest feasts!” say sibling storytellers Aron and Sorcha Hegarty founding members of Candlelit Tales. 

Driven by a passion for Irish mythology, Candlelit Tales tell stories in an expressive, naturalistic, and modern style. A live original music score composed by a team of talented musicians drives the rhythm of the storytelling, weaving through the tale and sweeping the listener away. Breathing life back into old stories Candlelit Tales promise to make you laugh, cry, or maybe even roar!

“We’re delighted to be bringing our storytelling and music style to Moate this November. And we are bringing stories to fit the season… Irish style!” say Aron and Sorcha. Candlelit Tales will be preforming ‘Fighting and Feasts’, which is described as live music, storytelling and ‘imbas’. (Imbas refers to the sacred inspiration possessed by ancient poets or filí.)

See Candlelit Tales on Thursday November 10th at 7:30pm in Tuar Ard Arts Centre in Moate. This event is being offered free of charge, funded by the Creative Ireland Programme, Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media. Come along early to get a good seat!
