Irish harpist and singer Áine Minogue will present “Harvest and Halloween” on Sunday, October 18, at 3 PM. The concert will include a celebration of the harvest, Halloween and the holiday’s roots in the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain.
Samhain, or Halloween as it has come to be known, was actually New Year’s Eve on the old Irish and Celtic calendar, one of the most important days of the year. The children’s tradition of otherworldly creatures coming to life on Halloween has its origins in the ancient feast of Samhain. Ms. Minogue has long explored Ireland’s themes, reflecting the Irish music, mythology and poetry in her work.
Tickets to “Harvest and Halloween” are $20 and can be purchased through the center’s website or by calling 508-394-7100. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines will be observed, including socially distanced table seating and mask usage.
The Cultural Center of Cape Cod is at 307 Old Main Street in South Yarmouth.
