About Hazy Recollections

Celtic Connections 2018 ushers in Hazy Recollections’ tenth anniversary year, as a much-loved platform for artists who dwell where folk, pop and indie overlap. Having previously spotlit such then-rising stars as Blue Rose Code, Admiral Fallow, Rachel Sermanni, Adam Holmes and Siobhan Wilson, Glasgow’s own Findlay Napier curates and hosts another three five-act bills for your Sunday afternoon delectation, each including a surprise choice from the wider festival programme by artistic director Donald Shaw.

January 21st
Among the opening bill of fare, young Fife-born guitarist/singer Reece Hillis crafts original soul/blues music from classic influences, on 2016’s self-penned debut album Eclectic Soul. Local open-mic veteran (and qualified dentist) Chrissy Barnacle – of ‘DIY bubblegum punk’ outfit Joyce Delaney – delivers a “gleefully twisted take on traditional balladeering” (Louder Than War), while ex-Velveteen Saints bassist Mark W Georgsson’s solo songwriting mingles folk, country and Nordic elements. Purveyors of politically-edged, jazz-infused pop, the newly-formed Josephine Sillars + The Manic Pixie Dreams are already shaping up as firm festival favourites.

January 28th
The second Sunday’s wide-ranging line-up includes Glaswegian alt-country/folk-rock sextet James Edwyn & the Borrowed Band, who launched their second album High Fences at 2017’s Glasgow Americana festival. Stateside strains also inform both Elliott Morris’s acclaimed rootsy songwriting, dazzlingly backed by intricate, percussive guitar-work, and budding songstress Zoe Graham’s striking stylistic mix of indie-folk, bedroom pop and bluesy swing. Kenyan-born singer/poet Beldina Odenyo Onassis, aka Heir of the Cursed (formerly Genesee), compellingly explores her diasporan identity as an African adoptive Scot.

February 4th
Gracing the final Hazy session of Celtic 2018 are two precocious talents who’ve previously featured in Scotland’s youth music touring project, Hit the Road: classically-trained Rhona MacFarlane, complementing melodic folk-pop songcraft with multi-instrumental prowess, and Age-Otori, whose self-styled “piano-ey goodness” distils wide-ranging US influences including Ben Folds, Postmodern Jukebox and Johnny Cash. Having ditched her acoustic, folksy alias Something, Someone, Emme Woods cuts loose with a bluesy, rocked-up new sound, while Jacob Yates, with his band The Pearly Gates Lock Pickers, revamps the ‘horror R&B’ and ‘doom-wop’ sounds of former cult outfit Uncle John & Whitelock.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Hazy Recollections are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
