Spotlight Norway!

Synnøve S. Bjørset is one of the artists playing at Spotlight Norway

Celtic Connections in Glasgow, the world’s largest winter music festival, will showcase several exciting Norwegian artists, including Jan Garbarek and Valkyrien Allstars.

Showcase Scotland presents an opportunity for one international partner to showcase its talents. This has enabled the Norwegian Traditional Music Agency in collaboration with Music Export Norway and the Royal Norwegian Embassy in London, to present six Norwegian artists under the heading “Spotlight Norway”. Spotlight Norway will take place on the last weekend of Celtic Connections, 28 – 31 January in Glasgow.

Some of the Norwegian bands and artists at Spotlight Norway are Jan Garbarek, Valkyrien Allstars, Synnøve S. Bjørset, Gjermund Larsen Trio, Skaidi, Majorstuen and Unni Boksasp Ensemble.

During Spotlight Norway, there will also be a possibility to attend a workshop where the traditional Norwegian Hardanger Fiddle will be taught.
