“Stout and McKay work at a pitch that elevates the traditional forms their music springs from to spontaneous high art” Scottish News and SportIt has long been part of Celtic Connections’ modus operandi to encourage musicians to invite guests they’ve encountered in their travels to perform in Glasgow. The results of this can be disorientating – pleasurably - for the audience.
SUVs are not for everyone. But even though they don’t like them, some people still need them – particularly those who may have a lot of stuff to carry across the odd muddy field or green lane. The answer? An off-road-ready estate car. Here, we’re looking at two rugged estates, cars with raised ride heights, tough body styling and standard all-wheel drive. They’ve both actually related, too: underneath, there are more than a few similarities between the Seat Leon X-Perience and Skoda Octavia Scout.
Twenty-five years ago, almost to the night, a troupe of Irish-American musicians and step-dancers arrived on the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall stage as unknowns and departed with a reputation that would make Cherish the Ladies one of Glasgow’s favourite bands and Celtic Connections regulars. Not too much has changed since that first visit. The musicians, playing reels with classy assurance, now come as much from this side of the Atlantic.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
