Danny Kyle Open Stage starts Friday 20 January

The Danny Kyle Open Stage features live music at 5.00pm every day during the Celtic Connections 2012 festival in the Exhibition Hall of The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

Danny Kyle was the most passionate supporter of traditional music and constant campaigner for its revival in Scotland.

The Open Stage has been an integral part of the festival for the last six years. Each night of the festival, new musical talent is given the chance to shine under the Celtic Connections spotlight and the six best acts win through to the coveted final night concert held in the Strathclyde Suite within the Concert Hall.

Compered by Danny’s close friend Liz Clark, it has been the launch pad for many now familiar names such as Adam Sutherland, Karine Polwart and GiveWay.

The Danny Kyle Open Stage is supported by the Evening Times and is broadcast live on Celtic Music Radio every night.  Individual performances will be available to listen to again and download within 48 hours of the performance on the Celtic Music Radio Listen Again page.

Danny Kyle Open Stage, every night live at 5.00-7.00pm from Friday 20 January with compere Liz Clark.  Commentaries from Ken Macdonald and Bill Morris.
