Celtic Connections & images of Glasgow

Celtic Connections, which takes place each winter in Glasgow, has begun announcing its line up. This year’s festival will run from 14 through 31 January, and will include appearances by The Chieftains, Ry Cooder, Kate Rusby, Eddi Reader, Cherish the Ladies, Angelique Kidjo, and many more. Among the more than one hundred events, in celebration of BBC Radio’s naming 2010 the year of the song, two special concerts will be featured: The Scottish Songbook, curated by Karine Polwart and Brian McAlpine with a range of songs and singers from the serious to the hilarious, and Jewels of the Ocean, a celebration of Gaelic song hosted by the members of Capercaillie.

You’ve met many of these artists along the music road [and elsewhere in my work] and there is more to come about Celtic Connections here as well.

A friend commented that the music must be amazing, but that she hadn’t found Glasgow very inspiring whilst driving through it. From the motor way, it’s not that intriguing, I’d agree, but once you start going around on foot you'll see sights such as those shown here.

It's usually best to explore a place on foot if you can. You might not cover as much ground, but you see these amazing details you'd otherwise miss buzzing by out on the highway.

Sounds like a great show. Are you going?

I have to agree, experience tells me that there is no best way to discover a town's secret than on foot.

Oh, I love Glasgow. Spent a week there during my semester abroad, which is far too long ago to please me. College student = sightseeing on foot = best possible experience.
