From BBC at the Quay in Glasgow, the culmination of World on 3's 35 part Commonwealth Connections series. Lopa Kothari presents with a concert of bands from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Edinburgh-based Shooglenifty, originators of 'acid-croft', mix contemporary styles with Celtic folk; 9 Bach, whose name can be roughly translated as 'loveable grandmother', are fronted by the Welsh vocals of Lisa Jen; uillean pipes player Jarlath Henderson comes from Dungannon, County Tyrone - he performs with Scottish bagpiper Ross Ainslie; and following the final Commonwealth Connections Heritage Track from Belize, England's Bellowhead bring their big brassy sound to the BBC's stage by the River Clyde.
