The annual Showcase Scotland music event will take place as part of the finale of Celtic Connections 2016.

Delegates from the music industry will gather in Glasgow from Wednesday 27 to Sunday 31 January to take in performances by songwriters, bands and musicians at the event.

Showcase Scotland will present performances by an exciting range of musical talent from France – the partner country for Showcase Scotland 2016 – and artists with strong French musical connections.

Donald Shaw, artistic director of Celtic Connections, said: “The influence and inspirations of music that is uniquely, brilliantly French resonates through world music and it is fantastic that this year we are focusing on French artists and music and the interplay with other cultures and styles.

“This would not be possible without our partnership with Bureau Export France and I would like to thank them ahead of what is shaping up to be one of the best Showcase Scotland events we have ever staged as part of Celtic Connections.”
