Seoda: Celtic Connections is a celebration of traditional music and cultural connections through performances from leading artists across three locations. Representing Ireland, Scotland, and Wales in 2021, it provides a platform to showcase contemporary work from three nations deeply rooted in folk and traditional music while exploring the many wonderful connections our nations hold.
The programme will shine a light on celebrated artists:
From Ireland - The Breath singer, Armagh born Ríognach Connolly and guitarist Stuart McCallum. An unlikely pairing though it was, she a folk singer, loud, brash and mischievous and sometime member of Afro Celt Sound System, he an acclaimed jazz guitarist, member of Cinematic Orchestra and a softly spoken Manchester urbanite.
From Scotland - award winning folk musician Bríghde Chaimbeul & violinist Aidan O’Rourke (Lau). Bríghde is making her mark on the global stage.
From Wales - SuperFurry Animals' frontman, Gruff Rhys needs no introduction. He is a multi-talented musician, composer, producer, filmmaker and author.
Join these incredible artists representing Ireland, Scotland and Wales for a truly special evening.
The event will be brought together by celebrated BBC Radio Presenter, Huw Stephens.
