The UK’s biggest winter music festival, Celtic Connections, will host its first ever digital edition with all concerts available to audiences worldwide. Across 19 days, the festival will present online performances every night between Friday 15th January - Tuesday 2nd February 2021. Presenting the best of traditional, folk, American, blues, jazz and world music, Celtic Connections 2021 artists include José González, Eddi Reader, Elephant Sessions, Breabach, Mánran Rhiannon Giddens, James Grant and many more.
As a festival, Celtic Connections prides itself on its international relationships and year on year it extends a hand of musical friendship to artists and audiences across the world. Organisers have ensured that, although the majority of the line-up predominantly showcases homegrown talent, a number of international acts remotely filmed are also included in the line-up so that the essence of what the festival has grown to be truly about - connections, collaborations and relationships - is still prevalent in this new-era Celtic Connections.
