Celtic Connections Music Festival 2011
The line-up for the 2011 Glasgow Celtic Connections festival was announced this morning.
It runs from the 13 - 30 January at a variety of venues around Glasgow city centre.
The Scotland's Music team have written about some of the performers on their blog. As usual they will be creating a Celtic Connections site with videos and photographs from the event. You can still visit last year's site.
Many of the artists performing are regulars on Travelling Folk, Mary Ann Kennedy's Global Gathering, Another Country with Ricky Ross and the Iain Anderson Show. Iain will be hosting a serious of talks at the Festival too.
For full details of who will be performing check out the Celtic Connections website, there's folk, country, gospel and world music to choose from. Personally I am more than a little excited to see that Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives are playing at The Arches. I've seen thousands of bands live, but none have come close to the experience of seeing Marty and his band.

So that's my recommendation, but if you have any suggestions please post below. There's so much to choose from and I'm sure other readers would appreciate it.
