Sarah Rice Brings ALL SOULS NIGHT to Birdland

No matter if you call it All Soul's Night, Halloween or Samhain, this is the most mystical night of the Celtic New Year. This biggest and most important holiday is also called Ancestor Night.
The music must portray mystery, mystique and magic. It must be ethereal, otherworldly. It is a time when anything is possible.
The Celts made little distinction between the living and the dead. And they believed that at Samhain, their New Year's Eve, the veil between these two worlds became the thinnest, the border flexible and open.
Come and celebrate with us the World Music of ALL SOULS NIGHT. Featuring the music of the Great International, Celtic and American Song Books. Costumes optional.
