Get Connected: A Preview Of Celtic Connections 2022…

Updated: Jan 14

This year’s Celtic Connections (19th Jan – 5th Feb) feels bigger and better than ever, with an even more varied, vibrant, and eclectic line-up than ever before.

Once again, the festival is a timely celebration of music – one with which we can all join in, with live gigs back in full swing. To get involved further you can become a Celtic Rover which supports Celtic Connections and its Education and Outreach Programmes.

With so much going on, 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 at which venue, and receive all the up-to-date news by following the festival on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

In case you’re not sure where to begin, we have put together our selection of SWH!’s 15 Highlights from this year’s programme, with videos from one of the acts involved each time. Click on each title to learn more about, and buy tickets for, each one.
