Roaming Roots Revue celebrates its 10th anniversary with an all-star line-up.
This is Celtic Connection's annual highlight-packed exploration of classic influences on contemporary music. Tonight’s show revisits themes including tributes to The Women of Song, The Band, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles’ Abbey Road and the music of Laurel Canyon. Curated as ever by Glasgow’s own Roddy Hart & The Lonesome Fire, the guestlist likewise comprises an array of return visitors.
Among them are Glasgow’s own Justin Currie, fresh from a sellout tour with his band Del Amitri, and Ireland’s acclaimed Mercury-nominated Lisa Hannigan. Also featured are Sunderland art-rock darlings Field Music; Admiral Fallow’s Louis Abbott and Sarah Hayes, ethereal singer-songwriter Rachel Sermanni and ex-Temperance Movement frontman Phil Campbell. Expat Californian Jesca Hoop presents a contrasting face of 21st-century indie-folk and Cardiff’s Zervas & Pepper magically reinvent the sounds of 1960s and 70s US folk-rock.
