Celtic Connections 2020

A thrilling tripartite encounter of oral dance music, percussive footwork, contemporary beatboxing and hip-hop grooves, carrying three venerable traditions buoyantly into the future. TradBeats, the brainchild of top Scottish stepdancer Sophie Stephenson, also features Mòd Gold Medallist Eilidh Munro, Skye’s Deirdre Graham and Catherine Tinney, plus Glasgow-Indian beatboxer Bigg Taj. Together with brilliantly feisty Québécois trio É.T.É and leading Breton fusioneers Krismenn & Alem, they map fresh common ground between their kindred respective traditions of Gaelic puirt-à-beul, Brittany’s kan ha diskan and Quebec’s tongue-twisting turlutte, in a programme featuring both individual and collaborative performances.
