Cara Conway /Robbie Fisher /Molly Adams / Mairi Docherty / Katie Maguire / Robyn Haig / Niamh Doohan / Breanna Wilson /Sarah Donaldson / Mhairi MacKenzie / Eve Boyle / Izzy Gillespie / Mairhead Campbell / Anna Gardiner / Catriona Duff
The Southside Fiddlers are an enthusiastic and exciting group of young musicians from Glasgow. They are taught by Louise Hunter who has been running her fiddle school for fifteen years. The group have played at many festivals both at home and away. They delight audiences wherever they go with their mix of Irish and Scottish traditional music and their love of performing.       Listen Again 


Foinse – Airdrie – Listen Again 
David Browne / Benedict Morris / Mairi Therese Deighan/ Callum Convoy
Immersed in the Glasgow Irish scene from a young age, Foinse are a group at one with the tradition. Having learned their art through Comhaltas, they have each honed their skills and talents into producing a real taste of Ireland in their music.  All four members are award winning musicians in their own right, having multiple All Ireland medals in their respective instruments: fiddle, flute, piano and bodhran.  While the melodies of their sets are overflowing with tradition, it is the accompaniment that drives their music, giving the audience a truly authentic experience of Traditional Irish Music.


Gem Andrews – Berlin  – Listen Again
Singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gem Andrews was born in Liverpool in.  Gem Andrews writes Americana and folk music with an honesty and rawness that takes the listener by surprise and cuts to the quick. Her new album ‘Vancouver’ is a dark and melodious meditation on the forces pushing us from home and pulling us back. Gem and her heartrending tones take us with her on many journeys; across countries, continents and oceans, seamlessly blending the shifting landscapes with the movements of her own heart. Her work is firmly rooted in her beloved Alt. Country and Americana traditions, with influences from Kitty Wells to K.D Lang.



Awry – Perth  –  Listen Again
Morgan Brown /Markish McNeilly / Alex Urquhart – Taylor / Tim Lane
Birthed from the verdant belly of The Forest arts collective in Edinburgh, the infant awry quickly became known for a very specific and laudacious behavior known as the ‘PSYCHEGAELIC ceilidh…
Awry quickly grew into a strange but precocious child that delights in making mirthy musicals broths twisted together from the woody sound of acoustic instruments, potent electrics and the Gaelic language spoken here north of Hadey ‘s wall …
Awry have a reputation for being able to make people whirl like a dervish and dance like loons but also dream, drift and doodle…

11am Andrew Gordon

12pm David Francey   Appearing at Celtic Connections 3 Feb in the Recital Room  and 4 Feb in The Tron Theatre along with Russell deCarle / Denis Keldie and Steve Briggs
‘A proud physical labourer from a proud working class Scottish immigrant family, he spent more than 30 years toiling in the Toronto rail yards, the Yukon bush and the Eastern Townships’ construction sites – hitchhiking across Canada at least three times in the process – all the while quietly chronicling in song the triumphs and hardships of life in the trenches.’ David born in Ayrshire  took to his musical career a bit later in life but it has not held him up in any way – with 11 album under his belt numerous Junos Award from his home in Canada his songs covered by bands such as The Ranking and The Barra McNeils  as well as touring from Denmark to Dublin Australia to Austin makes a welcome return to Celtic Connections




1pm Russell de Carle  , Steve Biggs & Denis Keldie  Appearing at Celtic Connections 4 Feb in The Tron Theatre with David Francey
In true “the show must go on” spirit, legendary performer Russell deCarle is determined to appear during this year’s Celtic Connections, despite the fact that a key member of his band has been forced to drop out. Accordionist Denis Keldie has been advised by doctors that he should not travel across the Atlantic following a health scare. He will still be bringing multi-talented guitarist Steve Briggs over for what will be their only UK appearance this year Briggs and deCarle have appeared together in duo format on many occasions over the years and the pair have recorded a number of albums together too in joint careers that have spanned the decades. When deCarle was lead singer and song-writer for Prairie Oyster, he led the band to rack up an impressive list of awards, gold and platinum selling records and No 1 singles. When he toured in pared-back trio format in the UK last year, reviews were glowing.


2pm John Taylor 
John Taylor is a Scottish singer songwriter that’s currently working on his seventh studio album due for release in 2017. John’s song “Pull you through” was placed in Golden Globe and Emmy winning show “Californication” which sent the song into the itunes singer/songwriter charts around the world including number 1 in Sweden, top five in Canada and no 12 in the USA. John’s Song “Break my bones” was played on the USA show Necessary Roughness and twice in ABC’s Hit show Revenge. John has just written a song called “Battle Cries” for an independent film called Kingdom: Fall of Illandriel.



3pm 3Hattrio  Appearing at Celtic Connections  with Lizabett Russo on 4 Feb in The Mackintosh Church 
‘Uniting the veteran talents of singer, guitarist, banjo player and folklorist Hal Cannon – founder of the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering – with bassist, singer and foot-percussionist Greg Istock, whose background lies in Caribbean music, and classically-trained violinist Eli Wrankle, 3hattrio’s atmospheric, jazz-inflected songs express their collective artistic response to their desert home amid Utah’s Zion Valley. “Haunting melodies and lyrics. . . a sense of place that speaks to universal conditions” (Green Man Review)
