Supported by the Evening Times, the Danny Kyle Open Stage features live music at 5pm every day during the festival, at the Concert Hall. Danny Kyle was the most passionate supporter of traditional music and constant campaigner for its revival in Scotland. The Open Stage has been an integral part of the festival for the last six years. Each night of the festival, new musical talent is given the chance to shine under the Celtic Connections spotlight and the six best acts win through to the coveted final night concert. Compered by Danny’s close friend, Liz Clark, it has been the launch pad for many now familiar names such as Adam Sutherland, Karine Polwart and GiveWay. And did we mention – it’s absolutely FREE!
