Celtic Connections 2020

Frequent Celtic Connections visitors who also honeymooned in the Highlands, the made-in-heaven banjo union of Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn surely count now as honorary Scots. Following their self-titled, Grammy-winning 2014 duo debut, 2017’s Echo in the Valley – just them again, and eight different banjos – continues their celebratory exploration of the instrument’s unique hybridity into collaborative original compositions. “As musicians and songwriters, Fleck and Washburn embrace the world” (NPR)

A labour-of-love collaboration between Julie Fowlis, Éamon Doorley, Zoë Conway and John McIntyre, Allt is inspired by old and new Gaelic poetry from Scotland and Ireland, interweaving four in-the-round voices with whistle, fiddles, bouzouki, guitar and piano.
