Edinburgh International Festival: Celtic Connections

About Edinburgh International Festival: Celtic Connections

For this specially curated evening, Celtic Connections brings its festival favourites Le Vent du Nord (The North Wind), a francophone folk music group from Saint-Antoine-sur-Richelieu in Quebec and Julie Fowlis, a Scottish Gaelic singer from North Uist in the Outer Hebrides. Both acts have close ties to their roots and bring a warm, foot-stamping set of rousing folk, often chucking hurdy gurdies, bouzoukis, mandolin, Highland bagpipes, shruti boxes, flute, melodeon and step dance into their rowdy mix. Celtic Connections is Glasgow’s annual music festival celebrating Scottish talent whilst looking outward to the colourful and often tangled up strands of folk, traditional, jazz and pop music around the world.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Celtic Connections are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
