Celtic Connections 2020
Ryley Walker and Cian Nugent

Sat 1 February 2020

New York-based singer-songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist Ryley Walker learned his trade on Chicago’s indie and experimental scenes.

Following a spell of fruitful collaborations with percussionist Charles Rumback he’s now touring as a solo acoustic artist offering a shapeshifting blend of blues, folk, pop and experimental sounds.

Guitarist-composer Cian Nugent’s musical influences range from suburban/coastal blues to the Takoma school, resulting in an orchestrated and fully instrumented sound that’s both playful and eerie.


Celtic Connections box office is located at the entrance of Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Visit their website for full booking information.
