The Edgartown Public Library will celebrate Halloween with an Irish take, with a performance by harpist and singer Áine Minogue on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 3 p.m.

The program will explore the Celtic roots of Halloween as it is derived from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-wan).

Born in Borrisokane, County Tipperary, Áine moved from Ireland to the U.S. as an adult and settled in New England. She has entertained former Irish Presidents and Prime Ministers, and is a regular performer at folk festivals and concerts throughout the U.S.
