BBC Radio 3 Saturday 24 February 2024 16:00 Music Planet Celtic Connectons concert from Glasgow

Kathryn Tickell introduces highlights from a concert recorded earlier this month at the Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow, in which the Orkney band Fara come together with guest musicians to make connections both within the Celtic world and way beyond. These include Montreal-based band Genticorum, who perform the traditional songs of Quebec; Jonathan Scales, a steel pan player from New York; Syrian qanun virtuoso Maya Youssef; and Les Amazones d'Afrique, whose singers come from Mali, Benin and Congo. Also in the mix is new Scottish string ensemble Thirteen North, performing arrangements made specially for the concert. Recorded at Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall.
