Celtic Connections

The Celtic world’s biggest winter music festival, and Scotland’s celebration of roots music in a dynamic new series filmed before an enthusiastic audience in the Hillhead Book club in the bohemian west end of Glasgow.
Boasting musicians drawn from all corners of the globe, it features established international acts, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Tift Merrit and Sarah Jarosz along with new stars, including the sensational Roberta Sa from Brazil. Closer to home, bands like Ìmar, McGoldrick, McCusker and Doyle and the Irish and Scottish collective Las reveal that music has no boundaries.
Series presenter and Celtic Connections veteran Dónal O’Connor takes us on a whistle stop tour of Glasgow, immersing himself in the music as he kick starts sessions and bar-room jams with a range of musicians; from local hero Phil Cunningham to the rising stars of bluegrass, Darling, Dónal encounters a cast of top acts, including home-grown heroes Four Men and a Dog as well as Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh and Maitiú Ó Casaide, all of whom embrace the spirit of the festival and collaborate with Dónal. The series also features the all-star Atlantic Arc Orchestra with Pauline Scanlon.
