Written by Archie Fergusson on 19/01/2015
LIVE FROM THE BUCHANAN SUITE AT THE GLASGOW ROYAL CONCERT HALL
After an incredible start over the weekend with two incredible Danny Kyle Concerts we start the week with another fantastic line up of entertainment, how Liz Clark finds such talent deserves a “Danny” in it’s self.
Starting at 5.00pm tonight at The Exhibition Hall – Glasgow Royal Concert Hall this is certainly a must have “Hot Ticket” and the amazing thing, it is a Free Entry. Attendances have so far nearly filled the Hall so arrive that little bit earlier and soak up the atmosphere of Celtic Connections
