Celtic Connections presents
Fri 28 Jan 2011 | 7pm | £15 + bf
Having worked with such giants of the genre as Lester Flatt, Doc Watson and Johnny Cash, quadruple Grammy winner Marty Stuart has covered most country music bases in his time, before revisiting its traditional bedrock on his latest album Ghost Train: The Studio B Sessions. A famously consummate showman, Stuart makes his Celtic Connections debut with his aptly named backing trio comprising Kenny Vaughan (guitar), Paul Martin (bass) and Harry Stinson (drums).
Edinburgh band The Marshals’ sound can loosely be described as country rock, although the power pop hooks of Two’s Company and the Stonesy swagger of You Can Have My Heart convey the band’s love of guitars, their way with a catchy chorus and their unabashed belief in the power of rock music as a storytelling medium. Their debut album Westerner, released in the UK in May 2010, received several excellent reviews, including 9/10 from AmericanaUK (“as good as Americana gets”) and five stars in Maverick magazine (“quite simply stunning”).

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
