Explore Glasgow’s vibrant music scene with this guided walking tour of the Merchant City and the East End.

Led by enthusiastic music fans and writers, this two hour tour visits concert venues both old and new as your guide tells the stories of the musicians who have stayed, played and made music in the city.

Walking the oldest streets of Glasgow, the Merchant City Music Past and Present tour covers cherished venues such as the mighty Barrowland Ballroom and the venerable Britannia Panopticon – Britain’s oldest surviving music hall.

The Merchant City has proved to be a creative stamping ground for everyone from Stan Laurel to Billy Connolly, Simple Minds and Franz Ferdinand.

This tour tells the story of the veteran venues which have found a new lease of life; the fertile relationship between the city’s visual arts community and its musicians; the legendary pubs frequented by folk music giants, and the newer, noisier upstarts that keep the grassroots scene growing.

Additional Dates: 01 June 2019, 08 June 2019, 15 June 2019, 22 June 2019, 29 June 2019, 06 July 2019, 13 July 2019, 20 July 2019, 27 July 2019, 03 August 2019, 10 August 2019, 17 August 2019, 24 August 2019, 31 August 2019, 07 September 2019, 14 September 2019, 21 September 2019, 28 September 2019, 05 October 2019, 12 October 2019, 19 October 2019, 26 October 2019
