Looking for things to do and see in 2018? Here are some ideas to get you started...

In this 25th anniversary year of the Celtic Connections festival, a huge diaspora of music with often distant roots in Scottish and Irish Celtic culture is explored. There are dozens of shows by artists including Richard Dawson, James Yorkston, Beth Orton, Siobhan Wilson and anniversary tributes to Blazin’ Fiddles and the Isle of Eigg’s independence.
