Celtic Connections 2020
Roaming Roots Revue presents Born To Run: 70th Birthday Tribute to Bruce

If ever a birthday called for extended celebrations, it’s surely Bruce Springsteen’s 70th, in September 2019. During his nearly 50-year recording career, The Boss has scored 11 US No.1 albums, winning 20 Grammy awards, two Golden Globes, an Oscar, a Tony and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Roaming Roots Revue 2020 sees an international cast of Springsteen-loving artists take their pick from his peerless back-catalogue, highlighting both its consistent quality and stylistic diversity, alongside selections from their own material. 

With musical direction and house-band backing from Roddy Hart & The Lonesome Fire, the line-up includes beguiling Irish folk-pop songstress Lisa Hannigan, multi-award-winning US singer-songwriter Ryan Bingham and The Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn. Following the Top 40 success of her Scottish Songbook album, our own Karine Polwart continues to expand her palette, while California-based Jonathan Wilson brings his latter-day Laurel Canyon sound to the party, and Glasgow-born Phil Campbell steps out solo from rootsy blues-rockers The Temperance Movement.
