Glasgow Music CelebratedLength : 4 Minutes 5 Seconds

Everyone loves the Barrowland, affectionately known as The Barras. Keep an eye out for the tribute on the wall to Margaret McIver the woman who started it all back in 1934. Then marvel at the list of great bands who have made their name here. And keep on coming back.

That’s the magic of the place. On our blog you can find more stories of great gigs. Anna Levin interviews the Saw Doctors who always try to end a UK tour here and Lucy Brouwer recalls her first gig starring an up and coming Blur and almost unknown Radiohead.

Do you have stories to share about great gigs? We’d love to hear about them.
