Celtic Connection is the traditional Celtic music festival that draws all musicians with Celtic roots to Glasgow for the annual winter folk music festival. Over two thousand​ artists will play music at the festival. Celtic Connections also features lots of events, particularly the so-called "leidhs" which are actually social events that feature Irish and Scottish folk music, traditional dancing, singing, and storytelling. Glasgow usually hosts the festivities during the second half of January.
