Masters of storytelling, Candlelit Tales weave a magical world around their audience with fresh, fine-tuned stories that bring folklore and fantasy to life. Candlelit Tales is a quintessential Irish experience that manages to blend the ancient with the new, while remaining a truly authentic performance.
Candlelit Tales was founded by brother-sister storytelling duo Aron and Sorcha Hegarty. Driven by a passion for Irish mythology, we started retelling the stories to a near-empty room upstairs in a Dublin pub one rainy evening in November. We’ve been telling stories and playing music from that day to this.
Over the past decade of telling stories in the capital of this nation of storytellers, we have developed and refined our uniquely expressive, naturalistic and modern style. Live music is the heartbeat of all our performances, and a live original music score composed by a team of talented musicians drives the rhythm of the storytelling, weaving through the tale and sweeping the listener away. Our guiding light has always been to make these stories accessible and available to as many people as we can. Because we love them, and we want everyone else in the world to have a chance to fall in love with them too.
