Leo Blanco and Keltic Tales will be performing Sunday, January 16th at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Strathclyde Suite.

Born amidst the Venezuelan Andes, internationally trained at such top cross-genre academies as Boston’s Berklee College and the New England Conservatory, pianist/composer Leo Blanco – whose previous Edinburgh Fringe performances won a Herald Angel award – boldly and beautifully blurs the boundaries of jazz, Latin, folk, classical and African music.

The innovative Breton combo Keltic Tales, comprising Jean-Baptiste Boclé (keyboards), Gildas Boclé (double bass), Ronan Le Bars (uilleann pipes), Jérôme Barde (guitar) and Archibald Ligonniére (drums), never set out to sound consciously Celtic, yet these influences echo intriguingly through their all-original jazz/rock/world material.
