Dates and times
A celebration of Galicia’s partnership in Showcase Scotland 2019, which sees top Galician talent performing throughout Celtic Connections’ final weekend. Leading the festivities are renowned Galician singer, percussionist, piper and folklorist Xabier Diaz, and spectacular all-female vocal/percussion ensemble Adufeiras de Salitre. With additional accompaniment on accordion, hurdy-gurdy and fiddle, their show will draw on 2018’s collaborative album Noró, derived from Diaz’s research into songs and rhythms from the whole of Iberia’s north-west, including Asturias and northern Portugal. Aptly for tonight’s fiesta, Diaz describes the line-up as “an army of drums to hold a party of colossal dimensions” – a party that’s sure to feature plenty more special guests.
