Get Connected: A Preview Of Celtic Connections 2022…
This year’s Celtic Connections (20th Jan – 6th Feb), like everything else in life these days, will be rather different, but they have still put together a varied, vibrant, and eclectic line-up which, all things considered, deserves huge respect and congratulations.
Once again, this year’s festival feels like a timely celebration of music – one with which we can all join in, with live gigs going ahead once more, and festival passes for the digital programme going on sale from 3pm, Friday 21st January.
Some events, due to recent COVID regulations, have been cancelled or rescheduled, so do check if you already have tickets for, or are planning to attend, any gigs on the original programme. | You can find all the details in the latest Official Festival Update.
However, there is still plenty going on, and, as always, there are too many bands and artists to mention them all here, but go to Celtic Connections to find out who is appearing, when, how to book, and how to watch, and receive all the up-to-date news by following the festival on Twitter, and Facebook.
