Celtic Connections 2023

Glasgow’s very own soul/jazz/funk powerhouse Tom McGuire and The Brassholes host the biggest, baddest party in town. They channel the Barrowland’s ballroom heyday with bucket loads of 21st-century pizzazz. 

This former band of buskers have won high-profile fans from Craig Charles to wrestling legend Ric Flair, before a sell-out show at Celtic Connections 2019 launched their eponymous debut album – soon to be followed by sophomore release Stay Rad, due out in February. With vocalist/guitarist and chief songwriter McGuire citing influences as diverse as James Brown and Bon Iver, their feelgood firepower is underpinned by seasoned, sophisticated musicianship, from a line-up including saxophones, trumpet, trombone, keyboards, bass and drums.
