Subject: Burns International Conference, Glasgow 17 Jan
From: GUEST,Philippa
Date: 12 Jan 04 - 02:17 PM

If you are in or around Glasgow during Celtic Connections time, you may also be interested in attending the Burns International Conference at the U. of Strathclyde (John Anderson Bldg. 325) 17 Jan. The conference runs from 9 am to 5 pm, so you'd still be able to go to Celtic Connections night-time events. Various topics, the sessions related to song and music are just before and just after lunch. They ask that you register beforehand and the cost - including lunch - is £20, or £10 to card-carrying students. Contact Mrs Cath Wales (!), Centre for Scottish Cultural Studies, Room L632, Livingston Tower, U of Strathclyde, Glasgow G1 1XH; 0141-548-3516;e-mail e.wales
@strath.ac.uk

The following weekend you should be able to find a Burns supper someplace if you ask around.

MC - I dunno about early seshes as part of CC, but Saturday afternoon in Babbity Bowster is a regular event, and possibly also in Lauries in Parnie Street.

As you're probably aware , Celtic Connections is a bit unlike your average folk festival, in that it never started off as a bunch of folkies in a village hall, but as a series of concerts that has gradually accrued a layer of folkiness..

Cloudstreet.

If you want a slot on the Danny Kyle Open Stage, you need to apply beforehand. They look for a recording, plus recent pic and biog.

You can get details on the CC website
at http://www.celticconnections.co.uk

Don't leave it until you get here. Mudcatter Maryrrf had a slot in 2003, I think, as did I. I've applied again, but I'm waiting to hear now...

Welcome to the Mudcat John and Nicole.

Skarpi are you coming to Canada sometime??? You were talking about something like that last year as I recall.

We'll be at the Big CC for the first time in January, 2004. We've heard great things! Unfortunately, we can only make the 15th - 20th, but we're hoping for a spot on the Danny Kyle open stage (if we can squeeze in).

We're new to mudcat land so it'd be good to find some more catters in Glasgow.
