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.”,
