Danny Kyle was a passionate supporter of traditional music and a constant campaigner for its revival in Scotland. Each night on the Open Stage, new musical talent is given the chance to shine under the Celtic Connections spotlight and the six best acts win through to the final night showcase concert. With a support slot at next year’s festival up for grabs, it’s a hard fought competition.
Produced and presented by Danny’s close friend Liz Clark, it has been the launch pad for many now familiar names such as Karine Polwart, Rura and The Chair. Details of how to enter the Danny Kyle Open Stage 2021 will be available shortly.
