Glasgow Music City Tours explore the city’s most notable venues, and bring alive the stories of the legendary performers who have stayed, played, and made music in the UK’s first UNESCO City of Music.
Glasgow’s diverse venues have always played a vital part in fuelling the city’s creative sonic boom. Our guided walking tours map out the musical landmarks from long gone, much missed icons like the Apollo to the hip hangouts of the current musical fraternity.
Enthusiastic music fans
Our guides are enthusiastic music fans, performers and writers who are immersed in Glasgow’s cultural life. They have literally been there, done that, and blagged the tour T-shirt. Friendly, knowledgeable, and proud of Glasgow, they are keen to recommend gigs, clubs, dive bars, and record stores. If you are a music fan, our guides help you plug into the city’s flourishing music scene.
And now in Edinburgh…
In June 2018, we launched in Scotland’s capital.
It’s the same idea as Glasgow: by looking at past and present Edinburgh venues we explore the fun stories and tall tales of musicians who have lived and gigged in the capital.
The tour ends in one of Edinburgh’s best loved folk bars – a venue which has played host to everyone from Hamish Henderson to Emmylou Harris.
We’re looking forward to sharing our memories and hearing yours.
