Celtic Connections on Campus is brought to you live from Glasgow Caledonian University as part of Celtic Connections in association with Celtic Music Radio and TRADtv.
From Monday 23 to Friday 27th January 2023 we are showcasing some of the brightest up-and-coming talent from across Scotland both in front of the mic and behind the scenes.
Today we feature:
Silk & Salt
Silk and Salt was born of the recent coming together of three Glasgow-based musicians and good
friends Grace Morton (vocals/guitar), Katie Allen (fiddle/guitar) and Iona Reid (piano).
With honest songwriting and musicianship that gathers inspiration from the likes of Rachel
Sermanni, Karine Polwart and The Staves; Silk and Salt’s songs speak of navigating the transition
between city and sea, the tidal flows of the inner world and explore the feeling of finding home in
people and places. https://instagram.com/silkandsaltband
Roo & Dani
Through growing up in Glasgow’s multicultural scenes, Roo was exposed to a wide variety of
genres and fell in love with music from a young age. Currently, he is enrolled as the first ever
violinist on the Jazz Masters Programme at the RCS. Pianist, arranger and composer Daniel Castro presents a wide sound pallet on his piano playing, drawing from Celtic and Scandinavian influences and blending them with contemporary styles in his lively and original arrangements of traditional pieces and original compositions. Together they explore traditional music in a unique way. Looking at the dances, gatherings and celebrations that are part of the cultures that have influenced them, and blending their own musical experiences and backgrounds into an exquisite mosaic.
