More than 2,500 musicians from around the world will gather in Glasgow for Celtic Connections.

The largest annual winter music festival of its kind and the UK's premier celebration of Celtic music, Celtic Connections features concerts, ceilidhs, talks, art exhibitions, workshops, free events, late night sessions and a host of special one-off musical collaborations.

More than 20 venues across the city stage shows to hugely enthusiastic audiences – we welcomed more than 100,000 attendances to 300 events in 2018.

Details of the stars of world, folk and roots music and the exciting emerging talent who will be appearing at Celtic Connections 2019 will be announced later this year.
