Reekie Blinders: Edinburgh’s Greatest Hits Blog

” A fascinating and witty look at Edinburgh’s music history. An excellent read” – Bruce Findlay

Our sister organisation Edinburgh Music Tours in partnership with Edinburgh Music Lovers is celebrating the publication of  Edinburgh’s Greatest Hits  an eye-opening guide to the city’s musical milestones, famous gigs, infamous incidents and colourful characters. With a foreword from Ian Rankin this compilation of bite-sized stories shines a light on the key people, venues and gigs that have shaped the city’s music scene.

From Bowie to the Bay City Rollers, Edinburgh’s Greatest Hits touches on the big names as well as revealing some lesser-known legends and tall tales.

To celebrate publication we’re offering the chance for one lucky person to win two copies of the book and a private Edinburgh Music Tour for four people, check our Facebook page for details.
