Celtic Connections line up announced

The line up for Glasgow's annual Celtic Connections Festival was announced today, with a good number of Americana type events amongst the 300+ events being held between January 19th -February 5th.
Look out for Tom Russell, Jim Lauderdale, Russell DeCarle, Mark O'Connor and Tift Merritt.
One of the big draws may well be Olivia Newton John, who has teamed up with Beth Neilson Chapman and Canadian singer songwriter Amy Sky for an album called LIV-ON.
In their own unique ways, each drawing on personal experience of surviving illness and loss, all three artists are passionate advocates of music’s power to console and heal, the common ground behind the new album. Alongside specially-written material, the trio revisit key songs from their individual repertoires, charting the journey from grief to hope. Check out this video as a taster for the concert, which is held in Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall on January 21st 2017. Tickets start at £28,
