Celtic Connections 2013

Duration:
2 hours
First broadcast:
Friday 18 January 2013

Mary Ann Kennedy live from Glasgow at one of the world's biggest winter music festivals, with special late-night performances from the Green Room of Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall.

Celtic Connections is held in 20 venues over 18 days with 300 events taking place throughout the whole festival, involving over 2100 musicians from 26 countries. Scots and Irish Celtic music is at the centre of the festival, but it has always embraced the music of the Celtic cultures of the USA, Canada, France and Spain, together with the closely connected cultures of Scandinavia and eastern Europe. In recent years the Festival has also connected with traditions across Africa and Asia. The concerts range from the most traditional to the most experimental, all brought together in the context of one of the world's liveliest folk cultures, with a never-ending stream of young Scottish musicians who are reinventing their own traditions for their own time.

For the past four years, World on 3 has hosted live late-night sesssions from the Festival at Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall. These start late, and finish early, with bands often coming straight from a concert in a main venue to play for World on 3. The line-up is always kept secret until the day of the event.
