Celtic Connections Launch 2017 Programme

Celtic Connections, one of the highlights of the americana year (indeed the first highlight of each year) has announced its line-up for 2017 which is cracking as always – 2,100 artists (!) in 20 venues across Glasgow.  The festival opens with a special performance from Laura Marling & the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall, and a host of events follow, including performances from Calexico, Tom Russell, the Felice Brothers, Seth Lakeman, Tom Paxton, Billy Bragg & Joe Henry and Eliza Carthy.  There are also performances from our friends at Brookfield Knights including Ozere, 3Hattrio and Nathan Bell.  Head over to the Celtic Connections website for full details and tickets.

Hopefully I’ll be able to offer some AUK coverage. It’s always a great start to the year.

Great line-up : and even if you can’t make it to Glasgow it’s worth checking who is playing as so many people, especially non-UK artists, tack on a mini-tour either before or after their appearance at Celtic Connections.
