Organisers of Glasgow's winter festival Celtic Connections have announced the programme for the 2013 event.

The Mavericks, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Salif Keita and Dougie MacLean are among the headline acts.

Originally conceived as a way of filling Glasgow Royal Concert Hall's January schedule, Celtic Connections is now entering its 20th year.

Thousands of artists will perform at hundreds of events across the city from 17 January to 3 February.

To mark the festival's 20th anniversary, many artists who have performed over the last two decades will be returning.

Among them will be fiddler Duncan Chisholm, who was the first person to take to the stage in 1994.

Tickets for Celtic Connections go on sale from 09:00 on Thursday.

Revenue from ticket sales for the festival has topped £1m for the last five years.
