Celtic Connections 2012: Laura Viers

Fri 3 Feb 2012 | 7.30pm | £ 14 + bf

Laura Viers comes to the Arches, Glasgow as part of Celtic Connections festival 2012.

A very warm welcome back to Colorado singer-songwriter Laura Veirs, who last played Celtic Connections just at the birth of her acclaimed seventh album, 2010’s July Flame, and shortly before that of her first child. With July Flame offering a lusher echo of her early acoustic arrangements, new release Tumble Bee comprises children’s songs drawn from US folk tradition, some of them centuries old: in Veirs’s words, “a sampling that reflects our richness as a people.”

Glasgow’s annual folk, roots and world music festival, Celtic Connections is a celebration of Celtic music and its connections with music across the globe, with more than 300 events in venues and locations across Glasgow from 19th Jan – 5th Feb 2012.
