Celtic Connections Music Festival
Date: Thu, 19/01/2012 - Sun, 05/02/2012
Bruichladdich is sponsoring the Celtic Connections Music Festival 2012
There will be various opportunities to taste the Laddie 10 and meet the team during the festival.
Bruichladdich’s Laddie 10 will be the Malt of the Month in the Royal Concert Hall for the duration of the festival which kicked off Thursday night and will run for 18 days until Sunday 5th February. A Bruichladdich stand will provide concert-goers with drams of the new Laddie 10 from 11am – 5pm each weekend of the festival.
The 2012 festival got under way with Béla Fleck who is considered the world’s leading banjo player, and 14 times winner of the Grammys. He was accompanied by his band, the Flecktones. After the performance - Duelling Banjos it ain’t - Béla Fleck was presented with a bottle of the Laddie 10 by Bruichladdich’s own groupie, Natalie Harran.
The Laddie 10 will be available to taste at Ailie Robertson's Traditional Spirits gig at the Tron Theatre on Saturday 21st, and at the Alternative Burns Night at Oran Mor on Wednesday 25th January.
Originally a traditional Scottish music event, over the years it has expanded in to an important world music event, with acts coming from all corners of the planet. Celtic Connections is Scotland’s biggest music festival with over 1 million tickets being sold to see 2,100 artists performing in 300 events at 20 venues throughout Glasgow.
