This bonus CD is exclusively available with the January/February (#134) edition of Songlines

This year Showcase Scotland, Celtic Connections’ industry event, has selected Ireland as the spotlight country. Given Irish artists’ long-standing participation at the Glasgow festival, it’s appropriate that a new generation of emerging Irish artists take centre stage as Celtic Connections celebrates its 25th anniversary. This compilation, specially compiled for Songlines, celebrates the diversity and artistry of young musicians working across the folk and traditional genres, stretching boundaries and producing the new, unmissable music of today.

The Showcase Scotland participation at Celtic Connections is part of Culture Ireland’s special GB18 programme: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain, a year-long programme of activity presenting Irish artists across Britain and celebrating our cultural links with Ireland’s nearest neighbour.

This 12-track CD features many of Ireland’s top emerging artists.
