Celtic Connections 2023

Danny Kyle was a passionate supporter of traditional music and a constant campaigner for its revival in Scotland. In previous years, the Open Stage would take place each night of the festival in the Exhibition Hall at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. New musical talent is given the chance to shine under the Celtic Connections spotlight and the six best acts win through to the final night showcase concert. With a support slot at next year’s festival up for grabs, it’s a hard-fought competition.

Produced and presented by Danny’s close friend Liz Clark, it has been the launch pad for many now-familiar names such as Karine Polwart, RURA and The Chair.

Free to attend, no ticket required.
