Saturday, January 22nd marks the launch of an exciting new partnership between Celtic Connections and Ireland’s Sligo Live Sessions festival, aimed at mutually spreading the word not only on each other’s events, but also the dynamic home-grown music scenes in which they’re embedded.
The complementary strength and diversity of current Sligo acts are resoundingly exemplified in Satruday’s triple bill: compare and contrast the instrumental quintet Téada, matching traditional fidelity with brilliantly fresh-minted arrangements.
Túcan’s explosive, twin-guitar-fueled fusion of classic rock, metal, trad, flamenco and jazz, and The Unwanted’s Atlantic-spanning encounter between three utterly spellbinding musicians: Cathy Jordan, Séamus O’Dowd and Rick Epping.
