Four Shillings Short

Four Shillings Short Facebook page

What we know as Halloween has strong connections to celebrations across many cultures, including All Hallows' Eve, All Saints' Day, Día de los Muertos, Samhain. Four Shillings Short will evoke the latter during a performance at the Samhain/Halloween Concert on Tuesday, October 31. As you'd expect from an Irish lass and her Yankee husband, traditional Celtic and European instruments (the British dulcimer, German bowed psaltery and Irish bodhrán) will be prominent; perhaps less predictably, so will the Indian sitar, Andean charango and an obscure Renaissance contraption known as the krumhorn. The free concert includes stories from Celtic folklore in addition to ethereal musical mashups. The (free) fun starts at 7 p.m. at Bemis Public Library, 6014 South Datura Street in Littleton.
