Celtic Connections 2020

Take your seats, please, for the latest in Celtic Connections’ celebrated series of traditional terpsichorean extravaganzas, hosted by a lavish line-up of top talents in the field. Renowned for his tradition-steeped yet youthful approach, accordionist Tom Orr helms the aptly-named Mega Ceilidh Dance Band, a specially-expanded version of his regular six-piece line-up. Orr appears again in Manus McGuire’s Copperplate Sessions, named for the Sligo-born, Clare-based fiddler’s highly-praised 2018 album (described the Irish Echo as “simply outstanding”), which features music from Orkney, Shetland and Canada alongside Irish tunes. Also among its mainly Scottish guest-list, and on the bill tonight, is renowned dance-band fiddler Marie Fielding. Yet more A-list attractions include the Robert Black Scottish Dance Band and Gary Innes Highland Dance Band, together with rising-star fiddle/accordion duo Ellie McLaren and Callum Cruickshank.
