Celtic Connections

Celtic Connections

Martyn Bennett, a virtuosic and iconoclastic piper, fiddler, composer and studio mixer, died on 30 January 2005, three weeks short of his 34th birthday, after a long and courageous struggle with cancer. It was the last day of that year’s Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow.

Celtic Connections, now the largest winter music festival of its kind, will mark the tenth anniversary of Bennett’s untimely passing with an ambitious concert hall recreation of his last album, GRIT, which was a spectacular splicing of archived traditional song recordings with uncompromising electronic samples and beats.
