Celtic January

Scotland sparkles throughout January with a wide range of winter festivals. Kick off the year with Hogmanay celebrations or stamp your feet to lively Scottish traditional music at Celtic Connections’ 300 music events in Glasgow (January 15 – February 1). Finlay Macdonald, Head of Piping Studies at the National Piping Centre, includes this as one of his favourite events. Why not follow his lead and enjoy the largest celebration of Celtic music in Scotland?
