More than 115,976 people tuned in either on 95FM across Glasgow or via its website as the station broadcast live for the 10th year running at Celtic Connections, which ended on Sunday 1 February after 17 days of broadcast.CC2015_Buchanan

.

Its 30-strong team of volunteers, with technical support from Glasgow Caledonian University Audio Technology students, broadcast live for 116 hours and this included live sets from 80 musicians and groups from Scotland, other parts of the UK and overseas.

Dunoon Community Radio for the fifth year joined CMR95FM in broadcasting their live broadcast to Dunoon Community Radio listeners on 97.4FM and the internet.

Celtic Music Radio Chairperson, Alex Jenkins said  “We wanted to be at the heart of Celtic Connections and these audience figures, our highest ever, show that we have,” 

“On average we have 72,000 listeners a month in the Glasgow area and in 175 countries worldwide online – so the increase for January has been remarkable and hugely gratifying.

“This was our 10th year of supporting Celtic Connections and we are both pleased and humbled that so many people appreciated our programmes, which we offered eight hours a day during the festival.

“We would like to thank everyone who tuned in, the musicians who played live sessions and the Glasgow Caledonian University students for making them sound great. With our hardy band of volunteers of presenters as well, it has been a tremendous team effort.”

TRANSATLANTIC SESSIONS BRINGS CELTIC CONNECTIONS 2015 TO A GLORIOUS END

 

Celtic Con Logo

 With attendances reaching well over 100,000 for the eighth year in a row and gross ticket sales of over £1.1million Celtic Connections has now ended for another year.

Over 2000 of the best known artists in traditional and roots music, world, indie, jazz, folk, soul and Americana descended on Glasgow from all corners of the globe for a fantastic 18 days of world-class music.

One of the highlights of Celtic Connections 2015 as reported on the Celtic Connections web site was the outstanding, sold-out opening concert of the live world première of Martyn Bennett’s final masterpiece Grit. The fantastic performance, of an almost entirely studio-created album, was lovingly reconstructed by violinist and composer Greg Lawson for a custom-designed orchestra of folk, jazz and classical players.

It was an opening night to remember with five star reviews and people, who attended or watched the BBC Scotland recording of it a week later, raving about it on social media with fans describing it as “beyond beautiful” and “stunning, joyful, emotional, amazing” and saying they had “cried tears of sheer joy” at the orchestration of the fearless album.

Other festival highlights of Celtic Connections 2015 included: Van Morrison, Fairport Convention, Calexico, Craig Armstrong with the Orchestra of Scottish Opera, Shooglenifty, Tweedy, Eddi Reader, Treacherous Orchestra, Lambchop, Carlos Núñez, Danú, King Creosote performing ‘From Scotland With Love’, Angélique Kidjo with the RSNO, Punch Brothers, Dick Gaughan, Le Vent Du Nord, Blazin’ Fiddles, Tommy Emmanuel, Hudson Taylor, The Pierces and Taraf de Haidouks, The Mischa Macpherson Trio, Tony Allen, Skerryvore,  Manran and off course The Danny Kyle Open Stage.

The Danny Kyle Open Stage which is supported by the Evening Times and broadcast every night live on Celtic Music Radio 95FM and also on Dunoon Community Radio 97.4FM.

Cutting his teeth in Detroit’s vibrant music scene during the 60s and 70s, he has played everything from psychedelic country to TexMex to traditional music from Crete. He has deep roots in Americana, Irish and English traditional music.
The have a guest joining them today Paul Daly,  Daly comes from “Flute playing country” Ballaghadereen in Roscommon to be precise and he is renowned as both a fine traditional player and a great improviser, a quality that he uses to the full on Tim’s songs.

djana GabrielleDjana Gabrielle  – Glasgow/ France  
Djana Gabrielle picked up the guitar at the age of 16 mainly influenced by a unique songwriter in the name of Alanis Morissette. Her love of songwriting led her to write and compose many songs but it was only back in 2009 that she decided to showcase them to a live audience. She settled in Paris, France, playing open mics , collaborating with and opening for up & comingFrench singer songwriters. In 2011, she was invited to play at the MIDEM in Cannes to showcase her work during their “French Vibes” set.  Now based in Glasgow, Scotland, known for its vibrant music scene, she intends to play more gigs and expand her music to a new audience

 

Reptile House- Glasgow reptile house
Reptile House are a trio of childhood friends from Glasgow’s East End who have been playing new and original music together for over 20 years. Although Reptile House’s music can be varied and impulse led, there is no doubt a common thread exists throughout, mostly through the band’s use of standard acoustic and classical guitars, which in turn lend themselves to the distinctive sound and musical freedom of the band.
Padraig Monaghan / Stephen Black / Eddie McGuinney

 

Andrew NicolAndrew Nicol – Glasgow
Three and a half years on after coming out of Ayrshire, Scotland with his eclectic and unique take on how to write a good pop song,  Andrew Nicol finds himself in the laborious situation where after half a dozen baby steps into the mainstream, the curtain has beckoned and the lights are finally sauntering over him. Having had the most humble of beginnings from performing on DIY bills in the town centre of Ayr to the fantastic debut LP release of ‘Fragile’ last year with the band, Andrew brings his solo music for us to hear today

 

Laurien, Calum ,Murray. –Glasgow CC2015 cmr
