CELTIC Connections will host a Borders Night during next year’s festival in Glasgow.

Headlining the showcase will be a cross-generational collective including such luminaries as Matt Seattle, Shona Mooney, 
Lori Watson, Iain Fraser and Elspeth Smellie, who have been writing new music together since 2008.

Elsewhere on the bill, Mooney also features with her piper father Gordon, and in the all-female sextet The Shee, while Watson leads her highly-praised Rule of Three line-up, and accordion ace Ian Lowthian duets with drummer Ben Redman.

Tickets cost £12.50 for the concert on Saturday, January 22, in Glasgow Royal Concert Hall – visit www.celticconnections.com
