Celtic Music Radio at Celtic Connections

Celtic Music Radio 95FM is planning an unrivalled Festival of Music during Celtic Connections 2017.

Our programmes will include live, up-close-and-personal sessions from international acts as well the best musicians Glasgow and other parts of the country have to offer.

We will be featuring new and upcoming bands plus headline artists appearing at Celtic Connections.

From 11 am to 5 pm, Celtic Music Radio will provide live music, interviews and up-to-date Celtic Connections’ news combined with reviews and ticket availability.

The sparkling action will take place in the Buchanan Suite at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall from Mondays to Fridays and from our studios at Admiral Street, Kinning Park on Saturdays and Sundays.

All in all, that’s 17 days, 136 hours and over 70 live acts all on 95FM and DAB across Glasgow and www.celticmusicradio.net around the world. Our live studio sessions on Saturdays and Sundays are free to attend but donations are always welcome.

In addition, from 5pm to 7pm we will broadcast live the Danny Kyle Open Stage from the Exhibition Hall at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

Celtic Music Radio 95FM is a charitable community radio station serving Scotland’s musicians. It has a team of 30 music-loving volunteers dedicated to promoting a wide range of music in a wide choice of genres from across Scotland, Ireland and beyond.

  • Less than a week to go.

    During Celtic Connections, we’re inviting lots of musicians - from “main stage acts” through to locally gigging bands, and up-and-coming artists - to visit us, either at the concert hall (weekdays) or at our Kinning Park studios (weekends) and do a live interview and session.

    We’re hoping to have a different performer in every hour from 11am-4pm every day. The programme is filling up, and is now over 80% complete. There are still a few slots available - to be considered, contact connections@celticmusicradio.net

    We will also be broadcasting the “Celtic Connections on Campus” series from Caledonian University. 

    Celtic Connections on Campus is a free concert series hosted by Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) in association with Celtic Music Radio involving performers and talented students from across Scotland’s colleges and universities. 

    Where : The Bistro, GCU Campus (3 min from the Concert Hall)
    When : Tuesday 19th Jan – Friday 22nd Jan, 12:30-14:00

    Come along to GCU’s central Glasgow campus to four lunchtime concerts showcasing some of the brightest up-and-coming talent both in front of the mic and behind the scenes. Audio students will support live performances, for what promises to be a unique look into the vibrancy of Scotland's current music education scene.  

    Celtic Connections on Campus is based in a new venue for the festival, the Bistro in GCU Students Association building. Just a short walk from the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, this informal setting will allow you to savour some great musical talent and grab a bite to eat at the same time, making it a perfect start to your festival day.
