Celtic Connections audiences have enjoyed a jam-packed weekend of performances as part of the 29th edition of Europe’s premiere winter festival.
Venues across Glasgow came to life between Friday and Sunday.
Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall, south side arts venue Tramway, the iconic Mackintosh Church, the unbeatable Old Fruitmarket, Saint Luke’s were among the venues hosting shows.
Stand out performances included renowned British Indian sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar performing her father Ravi Shankar’s iconic Concerto No.3 with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, foot-stomping gigs from Scottish favourites Mànran and Mec Lir and a sell out show for the mighty Talisk.
Scottish singer songwriter Kathryn Joseph was joined by the 20-strong Tinderbox Collective - an exhilarating cross-genre line-up of young Scottish musical talent with professional collaborators, while the festival’s partnership with BEMIS Scotland culminated in a stunning Tramway show, headlined by young energetic Guinean artist N’famady Kouyaté.
