Colin MacIntyre (aka Mull Historical Society) weaves magic on-stage with his musical storytelling. A multi-award-winning author and playwright as well as a songwriter, his music is steeped in the tradition of his native island. But his songs – while often deeply personal – also look outward. MacIntyre has toured the world with fellow artists including The Strokes, Elbow and REM and his music reflects insightfully upon contemporary events. Named Scotland’s Top Creative Talent in 2002, he’s spent two decades confirming that accolade and his current album, Wakelines, presents a lyrical, melodic meditation about home and family, islands and dreams. Tonight sees Colin present his sumptuous, universally lauded and Gold-selling breakthrough Mull Historical Society album Loss on it’s 21st anniversary, plus on its 20th anniversary, a full performance of the classic Gold-selling Top-20 follow-up, Us, on what proves to be a special night at Celtic Connections. 

Yvonne Lyon is among the UK's brightest and best singer/songwriters. She returns to Celtic Connections with songs from her most recent album, Growing Wild, her tenth solo studio release. Further demonstrating her ability to deliver engaging original material with fresh imagination, Yvonne consistently combines poignant lyrics with strong, creative melodies and a voice that can be both fragile and intense. Having supported Eddi Reader throughout the UK, performed with Beth Nielsen Chapman and co-written with Boo Hewerdine, Yvonne continues to establish herself as an artist of considerable significance.
