Celtic Connections has been in full swing in Glasgow for the last fortnight. One of the highlights is the Open Stage, which has been broadcast ever day on Celtic Music Radio, live from Adelaides in Bath St.

From an initial pool of around 200 applicants, 60 acts were given an Open Stage slot, 5 each night.

I don't envy the judges task, but they've managed to whittle that down to 6 acts who will perform later today in the Finalists Concert. All will get a support gig at next year's festival.

The Finalists Concert is fully booked - there are no more tickets available. But you can tune in live today from 4pm-6pm on Celtic Music Radio, 1530kHz around Glasgow, or online at
, or get it on your mobile device using the "tunein" app. It'll also be available afterwards on our "catch up" service.

The 6 finalists are:

Hailing from Shetland, Orkney, Lewis & Northumberland this recently formed band – have a cultural musical inspiration combining Gaelic and Scots and English traditions

Graham Lowand Jack Kirkpatrick
These accomplished young musicians from Orkney wowed everyone on the Open Stage at the Orkney Folk Festival , Graham also takes part in 'The Gathering' . They come down from Orkney to play for you today.

Taylor & Leigh – From Edinburgh
A blend of Nu-Folk-Country Blues and blisteringly hot play across the length and breadth of the UK, their music has also been used to promote Ken Loch's film 'Aye Fond Kiss'

BeldinaOdenyo singer songwriter, originally from Kenya now resident in Glasgow goes under the name of Genesse and brings her culture and travels to us in her poems and songs

Elliot Morris
The 23 year-old singer-songwriter from Lincolnshire began playing electric guitar when he was 11, but launched his solo set at 17, just a year after starting to explore the possibilities of the acoustic instrument.

Mulk – Aberdeen
Harry Gorski- Brown, Hayden Hook and Finlay Jamieson make up this trio, bringing a fusions of gypsy , jazz, folk, improvisation, classical, fund and world ! With their own compositions make up this new and vibrant trio.

The Ken Loach film was Ae Fond Kiss. .... Ae meaning one, not Aye.

sadly we couldn't make it to celtic connections this year - a shame as it's a great festival. i would have loved to have a night in the festival club following the bbc folk awards. a couple of years ago there was no gibb todd, who used to host the danny kyle stage and tried to keep a bit of order in the festival club. anyone know where he went?
