The Delines / Dori Freeman

Celtic Connections @ Glasgow Òran Mór (Monday 27th January 2019)

“We’re a late night lights down low kinda band”, says Amy Boone at the start of the Delines set.



Broken Chanter / Jill Lorean

Saturday January 25th 2019 (Glasgow Glad Cafe)

This was a belter of a night – and on BM’s doorstep as well…



Withered Hand / Hamish Hawk / Bobby Kakouris

Celtic Connections @ Glasgow Hug & Pint (Friday 25th January 2019)

“Wow I think we’ve witnessed something quite special tonight,” remarks Dan Willson



Henry & Fleetwood / Roxanne de Bastion / Annie Booth

Celtic Connections @ Glasgow Hug and Pint (Sunday 27th January)

It’s a celebration of Celtic music of course, but opener Annie Booth isn’t in a party mood.



Mariza / Mischa Macpherson

Celtic Connections @ Glasgow Royal Concert Hall (Monday 21st January 2019)

Mull Historical Society

Cake / Israel Nash

Celtic Connections @ Glasgow QMU (Wednesday 23rd January 2019)

Celtic Connections @ Glasgow QMU (19th January 2019)

Dallahan at first glance are just another young folk group playing up tempo jigs and reels.



Pete Wylie

Glasgow King Tut's Wah Wah Hut (Wednesday 23rd January 2019)

So Wylie was back at King Tut’s – after a very entertaining show several years ago



Sona Jobarteh / The Como Mammas

Celtic Connections @ Glasgow Queen Margaret Union (Sunday 20th January 2019)

This was one of those moments when you find yourself watching something that you never expected.
