Celtic Connections add to line-up

Celtic Connections have announced two more impressive additions to their line-up. Martha Wainwright and Teddy Thompson will perform a double-bill at the Old Fruitmarket on 27 January.

A host of special guests have also been added to the bill for the Jamaican Burns Night. Kingston’s legendary rhythm section Sly & Robbie will join Karine Polwart, Sharon Shannon and Edwyn Collins for a special evening, featuring specially arranged Burns songs and dub versions of the music of Collins’ group, Orange Juice. Elsewhere, Celtic Connections will screen Béla Fleck’s award-winning film Throw Down Your Heart, followed by a Q&A session with Fleck.
