This week’s Celtic Connections 2011 recorded concert features one in a series of afternoon sessions called Hazy Recollections at the 02 ABC 2, Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow on Sunday 30 January 2011 at 2.30pm.
Celtic Music Radio will broadcast this concert on Saturday 12 March at 2.00-4.00pm with a repeat at 10.00pm.
Hazy Recollections celebrates and connects acts whose music meets at the boundaries of the indie, folk and roots scenes. Over the past year it has brought together a wealth of these versatile artists and built a loyal following in and around Glasgow.
Presented each Sunday during Celtic Connections the best UK based acts are joined with some international friends for a special series of Sunday Sessions.
Folk-rock sextet, Woodenbox with a Fistful of Fivers are joined on this bill by Edinburgh singer-songwriter Alex Cornish whose DIY debut album When the Traffic Stops gained glowing reviews, as he showcases his dark hued hauntingly melodic pop alongside Findlay Napier and his Bar Room Mountaineers (pictured) with their rootsy progressive sound, drawing influences from genres including blues, Americana, folk, funk and country.
Completing the line up will be the natural folky sound of Glasgow band Julia and the Doogans as well as Newfoundland native Amelia Curran, whose voice has been likened to both Mary Chapin Carpenter and Beth Nielsen Chapman.
