I have compiled a playlist with performances from the Celtic Connections 2018 in Glasgow.
The Playlist starts with some great videos from the Bothy Culture concert with the Danny MacAskill and the GRIT Orchestra.
First video: Danny MacAskill (mountain bike) recreates some of his ‘Ridge’ film at the concert.
Other bands included are: The String Sisters, The Johnstone Pipe Band, Angus J MacColl, Tryst, Skipinnish, Big Country, James Duncan MacKenzie, Finlay MacDonald, Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas, Apiary, Vair from Shetland, Roelle Blue, Le Vent du Nord, Sian, Emily Barker, Project Smok, Frank Turner, Will Varley, Elephant Sessions, Sarah Jaroz, and more.
I would like to show one video because in this video you can see Eeva Talsi from Estonio from the band Curly Strings. Curly Strings played in Freiburg just before the went to Glasgow for the Celtic Connections where she played with her Torupilli Jussi Trio.
You can find more performances from Celtic Connections 2018 on the website of the BBC:
