Celtic Connections 2018 Glasgow – Playlist

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.

Enjoy!

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:

Sarah Jarosz at Shrewsbury Folk Festival – Complete Concert

The complete concert from the Shrewsbury Folk Festival 2017 with Sarah Jarosz is available in the youtube channel of the Shrewsbury Folk Festival. Sarah Jarosz is one of my favorite young American mandolin players.

Sarah plays her octave mandolin, mandolin, banjo and guitar. The setlist included many songs from her last album “Undercurrent”. I enjoyed the concert very much!

Madeira Mandolin Festival – Festival Internacional de Bandolins da…

I have recently started to collect videos with the mandolin orchestras from Madeira. Madeira has a long tradition of mandolin orchestras.

In 2016 the first Madeira Mandolin Festival took place. I have found several great videos made during this festival with the Edu Miranda Trio, Luís Peixoto and Norberto Cruz.

Edu Miranda Trio is playing some great Choros, Luís Peixoto plays two solo pieces on the cavaquinho, and Norberto Cruz plays a Sonata by Carlos Seixas.
