Le Vent du Nord and Breabach

Posted by Jackie on February 5, 2010


The gig I went to see at the Strathclyde Suite was headlined by Quebecois band Le Vent du Nord (‘The North Wind’) who featured here this time last year as I saw them supporting La Bottine Souriante, also at Celtic Connections. The support act was Scottish band Breabach. Actually though in both halves the two bands came and played together – this was taken towards the end of the show, and although not a great photo (I was too far back, this is the least bad photo!) it was a great gig, we thoroughly enjoyed it. They are touring together around Scotland at the moment and Quebec later this year – catch them if you can!

This blog is going to take a wee break-ette – I’ll be back with more photos in mid-Feb! 🙂

Strathclyde Suite

The final Celtic Connections gig I went to was at the Strathclyde Suite, which is upstairs at the Royal Concert Hall. This shows some of the lights before the gig started – I’ll show the band tomorrow.

Let Glasgow flourish (again!)

Here’s another example of the Glasgow coat of arms. This one is up on the outside wall of the Royal Concert Hall.

Bendy Building

Posted by Jackie on January 31, 2009


I’ve shown a few concert shots, so before I start the next lot I thought I’d throw in a building to keep the architecture fans happy. This is a view of the Royal Concert Hall (which is where I saw the last concert), at the top of Buchanan Street. The road off to the left is Sauchiehall Street (see yesterday’s picture).

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!)
