Apple Jack

Over the years traditions change – some die out and others begin. One such new tradition is the annual Celtic connections Festival in Glasgow which does much to brighten up the dark days in January and early February with a feast of music and song. Under Director Donald Shaw, the 15th Celtic Connections will run from Wednesday 16 January to Sunday 3 February 2008 over 14 venues in Glasgow. This year there is a massive Gaelic contribution to Celtic Connections 2008 as reflected in The Scotsman heading of 24 November 2007 – ‘Gŕelic gu leňr aig Celtic Connections’. A galaxy of Gaelic singers and musicians, including Julie Fowlis, Donnie Munro Christine Primrose, will add much to the 19 days entertainment. One of the main ‘hits’ of the Festival will surely be a performance by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and a chorus assembled by Scottish Opera of ‘Praise of Ben Dorain’ by composer Ronald Stevenson. There will also be an opportunity to try Gaelic song on 20 January. Visit www.celticconnections,com for full details of an outstanding programme of events to suit all musical tastes. You can toast the success of Celtic Connections 2008 with this week’s recipe – Apple Jack.
