Artists hook up with promoters at Celtic Connections

MORE than 100 international promoters, agents, and record label executives are gathering online for the 21st annual “Showcase Scotland” exposition.

The trade show runs alongside the Celtic Connections music festival.

Artists usually generate around £3 million in gig bookings and album sales on the back of the industry event.

Megan Henderson, who plays fiddle in her band, Breabach, said: “It’s great to have such a brilliant focus on Scotland and in particular Gaelic artists this year.

“Showcase Scotland really delivers opportunities for artists and for us was the catalyst to collaborations with the likes of Sydney Opera House.

“It’s great to see it happening and to so many of the international music industry being involved.”
