Samhain is a pagan religious festival dating from the pre-Christian world of the Celts. It occurs at the midpoint be- tween the fall equinox and the winter solstice and welcomes in the harvest while ushering in the winter and the dark half of the year. Celebrants believe that the barriers between the physical world and the spirit world break down during Samhain, allowing more interaction between humans and the Otherworld. Be sure to join us in the celebration of Samhain with the best of traditional music courtesy of Music in the Glen & Cleamairí Feirste!
Music in the Glen
Music In The Glen are an exciting trio performing the very best of Irish traditional music. Featuring the combined talents of Brendan Mulholland (flute) and founding Réalta members Conor Lamb (uilleann pipes, whistles) and Deirdre Galway (guitar), these musicians deliver the infectious rhythm and soul which are the hallmarks of Irish music.
Cleamairí Feirste promote the tradition of indigenous mumming and celebrate the Celtic festivals keeping the ancient rituals alive. They are proud to promote and continue the mumming tradition of the Cleamairí in Belfast and beyond and will be sure to put on a show as part of our Samhain celebration.
