The Dark Descends

About The Dark Descends

presented by Candlelit Tales

The year is coming to a close.

This is the time of year that our ancestors celebrated as the end… and the beginning.

A time when every light was extinguished, and only re-lit in solemn ceremony, to guide visitors back through the veil and home to the Otherworld.

A time of magic and danger, and a time for possibility.

Where stories and music move through time and space to bring us together, to hearken back, and to draw us deep. As we gather our resources and prepare for the dying of the light.

As the dark descends.

We look back at the stories filled with darkness. From the dark, the light is brightest, and we weave melody through the words, as we will be joined on stage with two very special guests to celebrate the start of the Celtic New year, and prepare for Samhain.

Candlelit Tales was founded by sibling storytellers Aron and Sorcha Hegarty. Driven a shared passion for Irish mythology and expression, they started retelling these ancient stories upstairs in a Dublin pub one rainy evening in November 2014.

Since then, over the years of telling stories in the capital of this nation of storytellers, Candlelit Tales have developed and refined a uniquely expressive, naturalistic and modern style. Live music is the heartbeat of all the 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.

We will make you laugh, we might make you cry, and maybe even make you roar. We want to let these stories live again, and we need you to listen.
