About Merchant City Music Tour

Walking the oldest streets of Glasgow, our 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.

This tour starts at the Clutha and Victoria Bar, 167 Stockwell Street.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Merchant City Music Tour are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
