Celtic Connections 2014: Trampled By Turtles + Foghorn Stringband
Glasgow’s annual folk, roots and world music festival, Celtic Connections celebrates Celtic music and its connections to cultures across the globe. Between 16th January – 2nd February 2014, 2,100 musicians from around the world will descend on Glasgow and bring the city to life for 18 days of concerts, ceilidhs, talks, art exhibitions, workshops, and free events.
Celtic Connections is programmed by Artistic Director (and founding member of Celtic supergroup Capercaillie) Donald Shaw, and features over 300 events across multiple genres of music.
The festival is renowned for its strong spirit of collaboration, bringing together one-off line-ups for very special one night only collaborative shows. The camaraderie between musicians continues into the wee small hours at the late-night Festival Club – home of legendary musical collaborations and spontaneous sessions.

Trampled By Turtles (TBT) is a progressive bluegrass band from Duluth, Minnesota. The group is most famous for its high-tempo, fast-paced songs but also features lead vocalist Dave Simonett's lyric writing abilities in slower ballads. Their high-energy concerts have attracted an ever-growing, dedicated fan following.

Devoted to the interpretation and performance of American stringband music, the Foghorns' style encompasses early country music, the fiddle repertoire of the Southern Appalachians and the stringband sounds of the Piedmont region. With a line-up of fiddle, banjo, mandolin, double bass and guitar, they sing and play around one microphone and deliver brilliant Appalachian barn-dance music at a feverish, energetic pace! Caleb Klauder (mandolin), Reeb Willms (guitar), Nadine Landry (double bass) and Sammy Lind (fiddle) are all master musicians.
