Celtic Connections 2011: seeing music

rosanne cash and john leventhal copyright kerry dexterCeltic Connections, held in January of each year in Glasgow, Scotland, is one of the world's premiere Celtic music festivals. There are hundreds of artists and listeners, many concerts and venues. Yet, with all that, the festival -- thanks to the good will of artists, listeners, organizers and venue workers -- keeps an air of welcome and focus on the gifts and connections shared through music.

Glasgow in January? I don't doubt the music is great. But how's the weather?

varied and unpredictable. I've seen snow, sleet, cold and clear, high wind, rain, freezing fog, mist, and even mild (40 degrees F) weather -- but hey, all the concerts are indoors. I get around on foot and have survived!
