Celtic Connections 2022

Fast approaching their 40th anniversary, Capercaillie stand secure as a seminal presence in contemporary Celtic music, at once revered for their many groundbreaking achievements and beloved as a still thrilling live act. Their role as pioneers of Scotland’s Gaelic song revival, thanks to Karen Matheson’s sublime vocals, and the store of songs passed down from her Barra grandmother, has inspired myriad successors, while their innovative, outward-looking approach to arrangements and instrumentation has been hugely influential in today’s ongoing Scottish folk renaissance. 

Marking yet another first in this illustrious career, the long-established line-up of Matheson, Donald Shaw, Charlie McKerron, Michael McGoldrick, Ewen Vernal, Manus Lunny and David Robertson take the stage tonight flanked by the full splendour of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Featuring brand-new orchestrations by the one and only Greg Lawson, the set-list spans Capercaillie’s entire back-catalogue, from their debut album Cascade, released in 1984, to their latest, 2013’s At the Heart of It All.
