Acclaimed singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson returns to Celtic Connections for an exclusive pre-launch of his hotly-anticipated fifth album Bella, out on 1st February 2011. Combining gimlet-eyed lyrics, taut rock’n’roll stylings and touches of reluctant romanticism, Thompson is also a superb live performer.

Switching between tender love songs and bitingly articulate pop anthems, swathed in live-looped layers of guitar, piano and bass, David Ford is finally translating critical raves into popular recognition with his third solo album Let the Hard Times Roll. Three-time Grammy winner Ashley Cleveland, whose repertoire spans the gospel/spiritual spectrum, is a singer of extraordinary fire, grit and passion.
