Review: John Grant, Celtic Connections 2019 | The Fountain
It’s been the most intriguing of journeys for John Grant, from a place in time when he feared he’d never make music again or escape a life of addiction, to winning awards and accolades, as well as the heart and soul of the Glasgow audience, as he performs as part of the Celtic Connections 2019. A gig that seemed rather far removed from this festival and not just in proximity (it was at the King's), it also felt an odd inclusion for the festival, it held it's own as the crowd danced and heckled fondly. Supported by his friend, E.B. The Younger, there were occasional intimate moments throughout the performance, which rendered the evening more entertaining.
