Every year at Celtic Connections the cream of new musical talent perform at the Danny Kyle Open Stage.
A diverse panel of judges – from industry stalwarts to members of the general public – then have the unenviable task of picking just six finalists who are all winners from the numerous acts that took part.
The finalists of this year’s Open Stage, which is supported by the Evening Times and broadcast live every night live on Celtic Music Radio 95FM, performed in the finale concert on Sunday 1 February in the Exhibition Hall of The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, before being presented with their awards. Each of the six finalists will then get a support performance slot at Celtic Connections 2016.
Liz Clark, Producer of the Danny Kyle Open Stage, said: “Once again we have seen an outstanding level of talent at the Danny Kyle Open Stage. Year on year the up and coming artists blow me away with their ability and enthusiasm and this year was no exception.
“It was fantastic to see our six winners from last year take to the Celtic Connections stages and I have no doubt that this year’s six winners will be firm favourites at Celtic Connections 2016. Watch this space.”
