Celtic Connections

Le Vent du Nord & Julie Fowlis

Presented by Celtic Connections

An evening with Celtic Connections, part of Light on the Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside.

For this specially curated evening, Celtic Connections brings its festival favourites Le Vent du Nord (The North Wind), a francophone folk music group from Saint-Antoine-sur-Richelieu in Quebec and Julie Fowlis, a Scottish Gaelic singer from North Uist in the Outer Hebrides. Both acts have close ties to their roots and bring a warm, foot-stamping set of rousing folk, often chucking hurdy gurdies, bouzoukis, mandolin, Highland bagpipes, shruti boxes, flute, melodeon and step dance into their rowdy mix. Celtic Connections is Glasgow’s annual music festival celebrating Scottish talent whilst looking outward to the colourful and often tangled up strands of folk, traditional, jazz and pop music around the world.

Timings as follows:

Doors open 7.00 pm
Julie Fowlis 7.30 pm
Le Vent du Nord 9.00 pm

The event will finish by approximately 10.30 pm.
