A TRIBUTE TO CELTIC CONNECTIONS, GLASGOW 2016


 

  From now through January  31, 2016,  2,100 musicians will descend on  Glasgow, Scotland, my native city.  Pipers, drummers, singers, the Scottish National Orchestra, and minstrels of all types from near and distant parts will entertain.  They  will make and discuss music  with Connections to and from the Celtic world.  For details of the 300 events, check out http://www.celticconnections.com/Pages/default.aspx   Also and important to web folks, be sure to keep connected to the BBC coverage of the events.

In tribute to this major music event, I offer my work for string orchestra  and name it “The Celtic Connections Salute.”,
