Celtic Connections 2020

Since 2001, when the final was first staged at Celtic Connections, the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year competition – initiated and still organised by Hands Up for Trad - has been a prestigious career launch-pad for winners and runners-up alike, showcased in the TMSA’s popular annual Young Trad tour. Among the honour-roll of victors are past and current members of such leading acts as Blazin’ Fiddles, Ímar, Fara, Breabach, The Shee and Back of the Moon, while many others have gone on to major solo success. With the 20th title-holder set to be crowned at Celtic Connections 2020, tonight’s show lines up all 19 of their predecessors, featuring a specially-curated mix of solo and ensemble sets from Benedict Morris, Hannah Rarity, Charlie Stewart, Mohsen Amini, Claire Hastings, Robyn Stapleton, Paddy Callaghan, Rona Wilkie, Kristan Harvey, Daniel Thorpe, Rua MacMillan, Ewan Robertson, Catriona Watt, Shona Mooney, Stuart Cassells, James Graham, Anna Massie, Emily Smith and Gillian Frame.
