Moving online for 2021, the festival has announced the first list of artists who will be performing nightly from the 15th January until the 2nd February.

Spread across 19 days, the festival will feature performances celebrating the best of the Scottish music scene and international music which will be made available this year online.

The festival is creating unique digital content from specially commissioned projects and performances filmed across many of Glasgow’s much-loved venues. In doing so the festival will support and encourage the creative industries to help protect Scotland’s rich musical legacy.

Those who have been announced so far for the festival include: Admiral Fallow, Aidan O’Rourke 365, Amira Kheir, Eddi Reader,Duncan Chisholm & Scottish Ensemble, James Grant, José González and Siobhan Miller.

An early bird ticket has been released that gives unlimited access to the full 19 nights of entertainment for only £30. Tickets are available to purchase here.

Celtic Connections is delivered by the charity Glasgow Life and is funded by Glasgow City Council, Creative Scotland and The Scottish Government Festivals EXPO Fund.

Donald Shaw, Creative Producer for Celtic Connections, said: “It has been a challenging but exciting process pulling this year’s digital festival together. I would like to say a huge thank you to all of the musicians who have contributed both at home and abroad, it has been brilliant to see them all get behind the concept and support our vision. We can’t wait to bring
all of this great music into people’s homes this January!”

The Early Bird ticket will be available for a limited time only. After this, the price for an ‘All- Access’ ticket will increase to £40. Tickets to individual concerts will also be available to buy from early January.
