ALAW @ Celtic Connections

2014 has been a varied year for ALAW. Alongside several TV appearances and performances at the largest Celtic festival in Europe they have also done rural tours from Northumbria to Herefordshire. 2015 looks to be equally exciting, starting with a gig at the celebrated Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow.

Glasgow’s annual folk, roots and world music festival, Celtic Connections celebrates Celtic music and its connections to cultures across the globe. From 15 January – 1 February 2015, 2,100 musicians from around the world will descend on Glasgow and bring the city to life for 18 days of concerts, ceilidhs, talks, art exhibitions, workshops, and free events.

Celtic Connections is programmed by Artistic Director (and founding member of Celtic supergroup Capercaillie) Donald Shaw, and features more than 300 events across multiple genres of music.

The festival is renowned for its strong spirit of collaboration, bringing together one-off line-ups for very special one night only collaborative shows. The camaraderie between musicians continues into the wee small hours at the late-night Festival Club – home of legendary musical collaborations and spontaneous sessions.


ALAW will perform at St Andrew’s in the Square on the 20th January. More details at
