We’ve gathered together some great video that was put together during Celtic Connections by the beeb. Some are acts that we have featured on Folk Radio UK who many of you will be familiar with. These range from the well known such as Fernhill, Kathleen MacInnes as well as Lau who did a great session with ex-Cream bassist Jack Bruce…I’ve never see Martin O’Neill look so happy! We’ve also included some up and coming bands such as Bard, Cahalen Morrison and Eli West and Naomi Bedford who we have introduced you to in the past. Enjoy! (Readers outside the UK may not be able to view them due to BBC terms & Conditions).
