Sing to the Dark Weekend

The Gaelic festival Samhain was once widely marked across Scotland, Ireland and beyond as a threshold into winter and the darker half of the year. A liminal time of fire and feasting, magic and mischief, and the ritual remembering of the dead, it finds echoes in Halloween and All Saints/Souls.

Singer, songwriter and storyteller, and Kings Place Artist in Residence Karine Polwart programmes a weekend of events that explores darkening and light, myth and divination, and the supernatural.
