Upside-down audience

Posted by Jackie on January 28, 2009


One of the regular features of the Celtic Connections festival is Danny Kyle’s Open Stage. This is an event which runs most days, free to get in, where 4 or 5 pre-selected acts perform a 20 minute set, in the hope of bagging a support slot for next year’s festival. It’s held at the Royal Concert Hall Exhibition Suite, which (handily for arty photo opportunities) has a mirrored ceiling. (I’m not in the picture by the way!)

    Very cool, though it makes my head hurt – it could be the fact that I’ve had a drink tonight!
