Celtic Connections 2024

A unique opportunity to experience, in a single show, the incredible talents and folk eloquence of two acclaimed singer-songwriters from Portland, Oregon.

Singer-songwriter and producer John Craigie has earned glowing reviews for his music’s heartfelt and intense storytelling that seems to perfectly reflect old Americana fiction anthologies. Craigie’s 2020 album, Asterisk The Universe, provided indisputable evidence of his consummate skills as a lyricist and musician. His much-lauded 2022 album, Mermaid Salt – borne out of the solitude and loneliness of the pandemic lockdown – not only generated over 40 million streams but also attracted critical acclaim from numerous titles including Rolling Stone, No Depression and Glide Magazine.

Music won the day when Jeffrey Martin had to choose between song-writing and teaching. Now, with several lyric-driven folk albums and tours of the US and Europe under his belt, the artist has a fast-growing international audience. Martin’s songs exploring human experience possess a raw intensity and can sound like stories from literary giants. His albums have won considerable praise, with No Depression hailing Dogs in the Daylight as being ‘as close to a masterpiece as a folk album by an emerging singer-songwriter as you can get’, and Rough Trade attesting Martin’s potent latest release, Thank God We Left The Garden, ‘craves your full attention’.
