Celtic Connections 2012: the music continues

Celtic Connections, in Glasgow, Scotland, is one of Europe’s and the world’s premiere winter festivals, bringing hundreds of artists for sharing of tune and song, in venues ranging from a rock club to a cathedral, from a quiet song session in a concert of the concert hall building to a grand performance onthat same buildnig’s main stage. As the music continues, here’s a bit of what all that looks like

I had read about this in your blog before (I think) and my only regret was that when I lived in Glasgow, I didn't know about it!!

Loved the pics.

Gorgeous photos. Interesting even though I haven't been to Glasgow yet, it's nice to hear about festivals there. I hope to get there maybe this year if possible.
