Celtic Connections 2016 Gig Guide

So, with just a few days to go until the start of Celtic Connections I've put together a wee gig guide for shows that i think you can't afford to miss! I've factored in a few off days that could be used to attend some C&T workshops or just to take time and recover from one too many early mornings at Festival Club. There is plenty of choice in here for fans of Song, Fiddle, Piping, Gaelic, Indie and Classic Trad names as well as the opportunity to discover new artists and bands (if you fancy yourself as a bit of trend setter).
