Listen to Old Fruitmarket:
“By fairy lights, your eyes pick out the old traders’ signs still hanging all around the balcony, reminders that this place really was a fruit market right up until the 1960s.” Our blogger Anna Levin describes what you find when you walk through the door.
Here Jim tells the history of a brilliantly re-invented space. Now music bounces off the floor where market stalls used to stand.
It’s a favourite venue for the annual international Celtic Connections festival and a magical place all year round as you can see on our blog. If you have any gig stories to tell we would love to hear them.
