Celtic Connections 2020

A double bill of single-instrument quartets, hosted by sublime Scottish fiddle foursome RANT, back in the venue where they recorded 2019’s spine-tingling new third album, The Portage. Shetland’s Jenna and Bethany Reid, alongside Highlanders Lauren MacColl and Anna Massie, pool their passion for the fiddle in a panoply of tunings, textures, elegant chamber-folk arrangements and dynamic ensemble interplay. “Dignified, deep and profound music” (fRoots)

From Finland, Sväng’s line-up features chromatic, diatonic and bass harmonicas plus the rare vintage Harmonetta, creating a truly unique sound that spans from Sibelius and Chopin to tango, blues and Balkan sounds, abetted by brilliant showmanship. “The harmonica equivalent of the Kronos Quartet” (Songlines)
