Celtic Connections, the UK’s premiere celebration of roots music, is staging a series of summer concerts to add to its winter programme.
The shows, which were due to be part of the festival in January but were postponed due to the COVID restrictions that were in place at the time, will take place in Glasgow’s Concert Halls.
Two of the flagship events are unique collaborations with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and will feature Skye’s electronic fusion band Niteworks.on Wednesday June 22 and Gaelic-world-groove pioneers Capercaillie on Thursday June 23.
Also rescheduled from January, West Virginian singer-songwriter Sierra Ferrell plays Glasgow Royal Concert Hall’s New Auditorium on Sunday June 26. Completing the line-up, Southern rock octet St Paul & the Broken Bones perform tracks from their new album, on Tuesday August 2.
