Celtic Connections 2020

Breabach’s Celtic Connections debut was their winning performance on 2005’s Danny Kyle Open Stage. Fifteen years on, they’re securely ranked among Scotland’s most skilled and imaginative folk acts, uniting deep roots in Highland and island tradition with the innovative musical ferment of their Glasgow base. They’ve released six increasingly acclaimed albums, while fuelling their creative appetites in collaborations with indigenous Australasian artists, Quebec’s Le Vent du Nord, and most recently – as artists-in-residence at 2019’s Celtic Colours festival – Cape Bretoners Beolach. Joining the band tonight, a celebratory array of past members and special guests will reflect this full wealth of globe-trotting achievement. “Exhilarating, energetic and accomplished. . . a rare, beautiful treat” (Songlines) 

Multi-instrumental maestro and Solas co-founder Seamus Egan’s shape-shifting solo project teams him here with the genre-melting talents of Kyle Sanna (guitar), Owen Marshall (guitar/mandolin/banjo) and Lúnasa’s Trevor Hutchinson, simultaneously revisiting Egan’s pre-Solas recording career, and expanding his vision of traditional music as a universal language.
