Music. Dance. Celtic tales of Horror! Join us, won't you? Take a journey through the world of Celtic song, dance, and the origin stories of the vampires, ghosts and other spirits of Halloween.
"Samhain, A Celtic Halloween" is a show with tales of fairies and otherworldly creatures from the Celtic Netherlands. A Halloween spectacle with high energy Irish dances, traditional and original tunes that will bewitch your feet and keep your toes a-tappin', forgotten love songs with a haunting lilt, and exciting dances, some which use real swords.
Samhain (pronounced sow-in) is the Celtic New Year. We know it as Halloween, and is where many of our Halloween customs come from. In "Samhain" you'll hear the tale of the original headless horseman, the origins of the Jack O' the Lantern, and more, along with feet stompin' songs and high kicking Irish dances.
COME EARLY! and listen to the live music of the Scottish Fiddlers of Los Angeles while tipping back a beer, wine, tea or soft drink. Get in your seat early and be entertained by the McNulty Irish School of Dance dancers.
You've been asking for it, and now we're proud to announce that CD and Tracks from the 2016 show are now on sale!!! Click HERE to purchase.

Scottish Fiddlers of Los Angeles
For the past 30 years, the Scottish Fiddlers of Los Angeles have delighted audiences throughout Southern California with the lively, energetic and irresistibly uplifting music of Scotland, the Shetland Islands, Cape Breton Island and Ireland. Their playing is characterized by hard-driving reels and strathspeys, hauntingly beautiful airs and sweet waltzes. Directed by internationally known Scottish fiddler Jan Tappan, and frequently joined by world-renowned guest artists….Without the Scottish Fiddlers, we would not be able to produce "Samhain, the Story of Halloween."
