Candlelit Tales

About Candlelit Tales

Surviving Samhain –

Halloween has passed, but stories are still being told. The folklore of this island has a magic way of taking hold. Though the ghost stories may seem trivial, the myths and legends and oldest tales have lessons hidden within them. How can we survive the dark half of the year when all we hear are stories of war, inflation and irritation. 

We have been telling some sanitized stories for families earlier in the month, and now it is time to tell these tales in all their glory, with all the gory and devastating detail.

Come fill your ears with something special this November. We invite you to feel the raw power of these old stories. Will you survive this Samhain without seeing this show…?

Candlelit Tales was founded by brother-sister storytelling duo Aron and Sorcha Hegarty. Driven by a passion for Irish mythology, we started retelling the stories to a near-empty room upstairs in a Dublin pub one rainy evening in November. We’ve been telling stories and playing music from that day to this. 

Over the past decade of telling stories in the capital of this nation of storytellers, we have developed and refined our uniquely expressive, naturalistic and modern style. Live music is the heartbeat of all our performances, and 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. 

Our guiding light has always been to make these stories accessible and available to as many people as we can. Because we love them, and we want everyone else in the world to have a chance to fall in love with them too. 

We are breathing life back into these old stories, for young and for old and in many different ways.

We will make you laugh, make you cry, and maybe even make you roar.

We want to let these stories live again, and we need you to listen.
