This years Samain Celtic Festival is on Friday 31st of October at our regular haunt, Stallet. Spuds and Sill will be hitting the boards together with great traditional and modern musicians from Sweden and Ireland. We will be performing an excerpt from the deliciously creepy A Skull in Connemara as well as a newly writen piece by Stockholm-based playwrite Niall Balfe, The Ghosts of Samhain. Niall has also writen our offering for next spring, stay tuned for more on that!
Tickets are 150kr and available from Ticnet. See you there!
Samhain is one of the four major celtic festivals, a harvest/winter celebration and liminal time when the spirits more easily pass into our world. The feasting, offerings to the sí and wearing of disguises remains today in the celebration of Halloween.
A film team have arrived from Hollywood to the tiny west Ireland islands of Aran. The islanders are all hoping to find stardom and a release from provincial poverty, especially Cripple Billy.
The Cripple of Inishmaan is a black comedy by Martin McDonagh, best known as the writer and director of international box office hits In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths .Set in the thirties in the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland, The Cripple of Inishmaan has recently enjoyed an enormously successful run in London’s West End starring Daniel Radcliffe and is heading to Broadway in the spring. But first, Stockholm as performed by Spuds and Sill, the amateur theater branch of the Swedish Irish Society.
