Battle of the Folk Bands returns to Celtic Connections for another deciding bout.
Four finalist line-ups, selected from an open submission process, perform for a panel of expert judges. The finalists are Falasgair, Glastur, Tarran and The Paddy Buchanan Band.
The judges are looking for the optimum blend of musicality and originality. With recording and gig opportunities up for grabs as well as the victor’s laurels, previous years’ winners – including Dosca, Eabhal, The Canny Band, the Tom Campbell Trio and Deira – all continue to make their mark on the Scottish scene. Come along and catch tomorrow’s stars today.
The contest was established by folk development agency Hands Up for Trad to encourage and support new and emerging Scottish acts.
