A positive, vibrant, and optimistic start to 2022 is what everyone wants and needs. What possibly could sooth the soul and give us all a much-needed lift? We can say with certainty that it’s the arrival of the Celtic Connections festival to Glasgow next month.

After a hiatus of nearly 2 years, Celtic Connections one of Scotland’s most popular music festivals returns to Glasgow, taking place from January 20th to February 6th, 2022.

Creative Director of the festival this year Donald Shaw says, “There are situations that you’ll see where people are playing that you’ll never see again, or if you do, it’s because it worked here first.”  

Here at the Brunswick Hotel Glasgow, we are incredibly excited to welcome over 2000 musicians to our city, along with many loyal fans who are ready to receive the sounds of our Celtic ancestors. We can’t emphasise enough the importance of booking your hotel room with us if you want to stay safely in Glasgow to attend one of the many gigs on offer.

If you are a music fan and attend festivals regularly, but have yet to experience “Celtic Connections”, you will NOT be disappointed. The festival has one of the most diverse and eclectic programmes of events and extraordinary variety of artists to enjoy. Every and any genre of music will feature from traditional folk, Roots, Soul to Americana, all giving a nod to their Celtic origins. 

The who’s who of folk, roots and world music will gather in our city and showcase their unmistakable talents to music fans, who are ready to lap us as much live entertainment in venues that are operating safely under government guidelines.

As usual, there will be a big international presence at the festival this year with bands, singers and musicians coming from destinations such as Mali, Ukraine, Denmark, and North America.

Big names from the Scottish and Irish Traditional music circuit will be around to entertain including Gnoss, FARA, RUBA, Sharon Shannon, and Mairtín O’Connor.
