BBC Radio Scotland The Afternoon Show Celtic Connections Special live from Glasgow 26 days left to listen 2 hours, 28 minutes
Michelle McManus hosts a special edition of the show celebrating Celtic Connections, broadcasting from the BBC's Glasgow studios at Pacific Quay with a live audience.

She’ll have live music and conversation from Butler, Blake and Grant, the supergroup featuring Bernard Butler, formerly of Suede, Teenage Fanclub’s Norman Blake, and James Grant from Love & Money. Plus Scottish/Irish group Dallahan, who celebrate their tenth anniversary this year, and vocal harmony group CLR Theory.

Scottish singer Iona Fyfe tells Michelle about Scots Women: Generations o' Change, an event she’s curating which showcases songs in Scots and English, performed by two generations of Scottish singers. She and singer Ellie Beaton play songs from the show live in Pacific Quay.

Plus, Martin Green of Lau tells Michelle about his Celtic Connections show Split the Air, a music and storytelling celebration of the community spirit of brass bands. And songwriters Kathryn Joseph and Lomond Campbell join Michelle to discuss Lomond’s remixes of songs from Kathryn’s album 'for you who are the wronged' ahead of their debut gig together.
