Be prepared for reet good bum wiggle.. Celtic connections 2016 Review: Glasgow power-trio the John Langan Band have travelled a long way since winning a Danny Kyle Open Stage Award at Celtic Connections 2008 – not least musically, with their brilliantly tempestuous sound encompassing “a veritable United Nations of musical influences” (Folk Radio UK), including Celtic, Balkan, Gypsy and flamenco elements, fuelled by visceral punk spirit. With a deceptively stripped down line-up of vocals, guitar, fiddle, bass and percussion, they released their debut album, Bones of Contention, to ecstatic reviews in 2013, following up two years later with the double disc I’m Alive/Live at the Globe. Folk Radio UK Review: 'The John Langan Band offer a collection of songs and tunes that take us on a vertigo inducing reel around European and American acoustic traditions delivering with a jagged, punky and irresistible edge. That three guys from Glasgow could conspire to create such an immense sound between them is not unprecedented, but to achieve this with such lyrical and instrumental flair is a rare, rare thing' Neil McFadyen, R2 Magazine Review: ‘Astonishing work, boundlessly inventive... driving rhythms and mesmerising folk melodies' Acoustic Magazine Review: ‘Un-categorise able and irresistible’ Doors open at 8pm open till late Tickets £10 ticket link below Support act to be confirmed

Each night of the Bank Holiday Weekend, Food Connections will be bringing you an evening of live music from College Green. Friday’s headliners are The John Langan Band. Don’t be hoodwinked by the deceptively stripped down line-up of vocals, guitar, fiddle, bass and percussion – this trio are high energy, unhinged, and musically extravagant. The band take traditional folk idioms, and deliver them with punk abandonment and virtuosic flair. Be prepared to move. They’ll be supported by Kit Hawes & Aaron Catlow. Best known as the virtuoso guitar and fiddle players from well loved Bristol band Sheelanagig, they draw on their many influences to create unique arrangements of traditional music, as well as their own compositions. The live show is a musical journey through Europe, America and beyond; combining dazzling playing with a fine sense of musicality and showmanship. “rip-roaring violin, guitar and vocals” – Larmer Tree Festival

LONDON FANS!
The band is taking a well-earned break for a few weeks now, but Langan Band fiddler Alastair Caplin is putting on a gig with his new trio 58° North at the wonderful The Green Note Camden next week alongside Tir Eolas - do come down if you can, it should be a lovely evening :)

NEW ROOTS PRESENTS: 58 Degrees North/ Tir Eolas
... See MoreSee Less

Adv Tickets £7.00 Doors £9.00 58° North is the latitudinal line that links the home places of the three musicians that make up this exciting new folk act; Ewan MacDonald, Alastair Caplin, and Lewis Murray, with a combination of fiddles and mandolin. Between the three of them they have played on some of the UK's most prestigious stages, including The Royal Albert Hall, Westminster Abbey, The Barbican and The Roundhouse, and played with some of the UK's finest folk musicians- Alasdair Roberts, The Incredible String Band, Emily Portman, Abigail Washburn, and The Ceilidh Liberation Front.. After many evenings spent learning each other's playing and tunes, the band have melded a sound that bonds together the ancient tradition of Scottish Traditional music with folk music from other European and Scandinavian traditions. The music ranges from the most intimate stringed slow airs to fiery table-thumping sets of reels. LISTEN TO 58° NORTH: soundcloud.com/58-north/sets/welsh-chapel-recordings Chamber folk/ alt-folk group Tir Eolas (Philippa Mercer - vocals/flutes, Laura Snowden - guitar/vocals, Ruairi Glasheen - percussion/vocals, Georgie Harris - viola/vocals and Hedi Pinkerfeld - bass/vocals) draw on their Celtic and English folk roots, combining traditional folk and original material, from virtuosic instrumentals to 5-part harmonies. Highlights in recent performances have been Bestival, Cecil Sharp House, Royal Albert Hall, Sage Gateshead, Kings Place, City of London Festival, Milton Court Concert Hall, Ronnie Scotts, and the BBC Proms (broadcast on BBC Radio 3). The group were selected for the inaugural City Music Foundation Award in 2013, and as a result were able to record their debut album Stories Sung, Truths Told, which was released in early 2015. Projects for 2015 included a concert at Shakespeare’s Globe for a series curated by guitarist John Williams, and a residency at Aldeburgh Music alongside artist Jo Lewis.

THANK YOU SO SO MUCH GLASGOW! Really quite overwhelmed by the turnout last night and the wonderful vibes that were flowing from you lovely lot :) Huge thanks to Ross Ainslie for joining us on stage, and to Celtic Connections for having us!
We're definitely taking it easy today, though if anyone was unable to get hold of a Langan Band album or T-shirt, there's rumours of restorative pints and steak at Stravaigin later on …

Lastly, if anyone photos or videos of the gig then please post them up to the band page, we'd love to see them!

8 years after winning the prestigious Danny Kyle Award, The Langan Band are finally making their grand return to Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow! On 28th Jan you can see the band play in one of the country's most beautiful and iconic venues - and as a special treat, they've got Piper Extrodanaire and Celtic Connections veteran Ross Ainslie joining them as a special guest appearance. The Langan Band originally formed in Glasgow nearly ten years ago now, so this epic show in the town of the their birth is not one to be missed! With a deceptively stripped down line-up of vocals, guitar, fiddle, bass and percussion, they released their debut album, Bones of Contention, to ecstatic reviews in 2013, following up two years later with the double disc I'm Alive/Live at the Globe. "Extraordinary stylistic dexterity...uncategorisable and irresistible" (Acoustic Magazine) Adding further cosmopolitan flavours to the night's musical melting-pot, French five-piece Zoufris Maracas - selected for a WOMEX showcase in 2015 - stir together strains of chanson, manouche, African and Latin sounds, plus a dash of Jacques Brel-esque cabaret, with vibrant vocals backed by trumpet, guitars and percussion.

And finally, since winning a Danny Kyle Award back in 2008, the John Langan Band have been busy making a name for themselves all over Europe, and return to Celtic Connections this year to play at The Old Fruitmarket on the 28th January. If you can’t wait until then to hear them, why not tune in to our live show from the CCA at Celtic Connections tomorrow night 7-9pm.
