Celtic Connections 2017 has officially started and we were delighted that Rachel Sermanni was part of a stunning line up for the opening ceremony at The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, featuring Laura Marling with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Declan O’Rourke, Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys, Cara Dillon, Aziza Brahim, Karine Polwart, Rachel Sermanni and Adam Holmes.
Mark Radcliffe also gave Rachel Sermanni’s track ‘Ae Fond Kiss’ a spin last night on BBC Radio 2 as part of his Burns Night show at Celtic Connections. Listen back at 54.24 on BBC iPlayer if you missed it: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0891yhz
