THE 2019 fes­ti­val is ex­tend­ing the hand of friend­ship to Gali­cian mu­si­cians, as well as those from other Celtic coun­tries. Cel­e­brat­ing Cymru, an evening cu­rated by singer-song­writer Gwyneth Glyn, show­cases Welsh mu­sic with Plu, VRï and Kizzy Craw­ford.

Ir­ish artists ap­pear­ing at Celtic Con­nec­tions 2019 in­clude Slow Mov­ing Clouds, Siomha, Strung, Kil­fenora Ceili Band, Daoiri Far­rell, Grainne Hol­land, Danu, Kieran Goss and An­nie Kin­sella, Steph Geremia, Lisa O’Neill and David Keenan, among oth­ers. The Oran Ba­graidh con­cert is a show­case of 10 lead­ing tra­di­tional po­ets and mu­si­cal artists from Ire­land, Wales and Scot­land who came to­gether last month to com­plete a multi-lin­gual res­i­dency in Gal­loway, in­spired by the song Oran Ba­graidh, al­legedly the only sur­viv­ing ex­am­ple of the ex­tinct di­alect of Gal­loway Gaelic. And a new event will be in­tro­duced to en­cour­age a close work­ing re­la­tion­ship be­tween the Basque Coun­try and Scot­land.
