Why Scottish People (really) Love Celtic Connections Music Festival

January is often a month where the short days and long nights emphasise what already maybe post-Christmas blues that we are acutely feeling. Glasgow and the organisers of the biggest and most successful Celtic Music Festival in Scotland are here to entice you to come out, get those feet tapping and connect with your Celtic soul.
The Celtic Connections Music Festival 2024 takes place from 18th January – 4 February 2024, and is a celebration of music, culture, and community that has captured the hearts of Scots and music enthusiasts from around the world for years. Glaswegians love to welcome fellow Celts (regardless of whether they are performers or music fans) from all over the globe, to enjoy a now cherished tradition.

A Shared Culture.
Scotland/Ireland/Wales and Brittany (France) have a rich musical heritage, and this festival provides a platform for traditional Scottish and Celtic music to shine. You’ll be mesmerised by the lilting melodies of the bagpipes or the foot-stomping rhythms of Celtic folk bands. During this festival you can deep dive into the genre of music that connects us all, Celtic Music.
