World on 3

From the Festival Club in Glasgow, Mary Ann Kennedy introduces some of the 1,500 artists from across the world who feature in 2009's Celtic Connections, now one of the UK's biggest music festivals. With late-night sessions and interviews from the venue, with line-ups that are traditionally never divulged before the day, and which has seen some memorable unplanned collaborations.
