Piping legend Allan Macdonald brings a lifetime of musical mastery to Celtic Connections 2023. 

A leading light in the Gaelic musical scene, Allan MacDonald is in demand internationally as a composer, musical director, piper, singer, workshop leader, and lecturer on Gaelic music. In this special show which was premiered at Piping Live! 2022, Allan is joined on stage by a house band of traditional music greats - Finlay MacDonald, Iain MacFarlane, Leonard Barry and Ali Hutton - as they perform Allan's compositions from his seminal Moidart collections The First Hundred and The Second Hundred, including his tune 'We're a Case the Bunch of Us'. 

"This was an engaging celebration of both MacDonald and his music, and it will be remembered for a long time by those lucky enough to have attended." (Pipes Drums)

Irish multi-instrumentalist Liam Ó Maonlaí (Hot House Flowers) is joined by Gàidhlig singer Kathleen MacInnes and piper & flautist Alana MacInnes of South Uist. This trio will give and take from both sides of the Irish Sea to compare and celebrate Gaelic music; the tunes and songs which make up our great Celtic culture shared between Scotland and Ireland.

Tha sinn toilichte innse gum bidh cuiream Cuairt Nan Òran a toirt Liam Ó Maonlaí ri chèile le Kathleen NicAonghais agus Alana NicAonghais à Uibhist a Deas airson oidhche sònraichte de cheòl is òrain Ghàidhlig. Bidh an triùir seo a toirt bho gach taobh de chuan Èirinn airson iomradh is cliù a thoirt do chultar na Gàidhlig a tha beò agus làidir eadar Alba is Èirinn.
