This will be our 8th year presenting "Samhain," a show with tales of fairies and otherworldly creatures from Celtic mythology. All told in the format people have come to love; a Celtic Halloween extravaganza with high energy Irish dances, traditional Celtic tunes that will bewitch your feet and keep your toes a-tappin', haunting love songs with a ghostly lilt, and exciting dances, some which use real swords.
Samhain (pronounced sow-in) is the Celtic New Year, celebrated on November 1. We know it as Halloween and celebrate it on October 31. Why the date discrepancy? The Celts' day began at dusk, so dusk on our October 31 was the beginning of the Celts' November 1.
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."
