Festival favourites RURA have teamed up with four folk music luminaries to create a unique collaborative EP, premiered here at our 2022 festival. Adored for their electrifying mash-up of pipes, flute, bodhran and guitar, RURA's 10th anniversary gig sold out the Old Fruitmarket during Celtic Connections 2020. When Covid hit, gig-starved music lovers lapped up the resultant live album, which fizzed with everything they were missing.
RURA themselves used the touring pause to work virtually with musical heroes, including fiddle-player and composer Duncan Chisholm; rising vocal star Hannah Rarity; and world-renowned multi-instrumentalist and Gaelic folk singer Julie Fowlis. Along with flautist, piper, and composer Michael McGoldrick and innovative piper and composer Ross Ainslie, this prodigious collective are finally together onstage. Watch those sparks fly.
Opened in 1867, Theatre Royal Glasgow went through two fires before the turn of the century. Standing tall through thick and thin, the theatre has since presented a wide variety of productions covering all genres, including residents Scottish Opera and Scottish Ballet. Featuring a Victorian auditorium, Theatre Royal presents first class entertainment.
