Celtic Connections 2018 – Fergie MacDonald: The Ceilidh King
Becoming universally known on first-name terms, not through ego-driven marketing but by popular repute, reverence and affection, happens to very few individuals. And in Scottish music, there’s only one Fergie. The legendary Highland accordionist/bandleader Fergie MacDonald turned 80 in 2017, and the festivities were resounding indeed – so much so that they continue here at Celtic Connections in his final Glasgow appearance.
This celebratory show features Fergie in conversation and reminiscences with Gary Innes, alongside leading admirers like Phil Cunningham and John Carmichael, before he helms a line-up including Allan Henderson, Iain MacFarlane, Addie Harper, Alasdair MacLeod, Hugh MacCallum, Colm O’ Rua and more.
