Recording a new live album exclusively over 2 nights at Band on the Wall, Salsa Celtica’s synthesis of Scottish and Irish traditional music with all the Latin American elements of salsa has taken them and their music all over the world. In the last ten years the group has been a hit equally at major celtic, jazz, world music and salsa festivals. Their albums have topped the New York and L.A. salsa charts and European world music charts, the band has been nominated for folk music awards and appeared as themselves in a feature film.

Their lineup combines some of Scotland and Ireland’s most exciting traditional musicians together with a stellar group of world, jazz and salsa musicians from the U.K. and Latin America. Salsa Celtica is a stunning combination of virtuosity and energy, making them one of the most exciting groups on the world music circuit today. Started in Edinburgh and Glasgow in 1995 Salsa Celtica has gone on to invent their own genre and then take it around the world and back again to critical and public acclaim.The group has released four studio albums, most recently El Camino also to critical and public acclaim. 2010 will see the release of a live Salsa Celtica concert dvd and cd album – recorded and filmed at Band on the Wall we look forward to you being a part of it!

This concert will begin at 8.30pm.
