French acts at Celtic Connections

Glasgow is currently playing host to the Celtic Connections festival, an event that includes celtic acts from
around the world, with celtic music as the bedrock for a selection of music that encompasses both the traditional and the modern.

It is no narrow selection of music on the bill, and as with previous years there are some key French acts playing.

Most surprisingly is an show by Nolwenn Leroy at Glasgow City Halls, a massive star in France who has been this week busy with the Les Enfoirés charity shows.

She also performed at the weekend's tribute show to Michel Delpech. She is however, little known in the UK where there is a potentially massive audience who could be won over.

On Saturday she performs an show alongside Karen Matheson, another legendary celtic voice.

Elsewhere, there are shows by Cheikh Lo, Emile Parisien and Vincent Peirani Duo, Zoufris Maracas, Blick Bassy and Moussu T e lei Jovents. French acts in the widest sense, appropriate for a festival rooted in celtic music, but with the broadest possible definition.
