Glasgow Music City Tours and Mharsanta restaurant have teamed up to create a series of tasty, toe-tapping nights out.

Combining an hour-long walking tour with a delicious dinner at Mharsanta plus fabulous folk music from local musicians, this Trad Trail package hits all the right notes.

Running on the last Saturday of the month from May to September, this harmonious Big Deal would be perfect for a date night or a night out with friends.

Real Scottish folk music, real Scottish food

  • With tours starting from Mharsanta on Bell Street at 6pm, guests will enjoy:
  • One-hour guided walk listening to tales of Glasgow’s traditional music from the folk revival of the Fifties and Sixties to Celtic Connections and beyond. This 1.2km tour is packed with stories about the heroes, villains and quirky characters that shaped the city’s folk scene. It is a version of the Trad Trail tour which has been a massive hit at Celtic Connections.
  • Two course dinner at Mharsanta, a popular, Scottish restaurant in the centre of the Merchant City. Enjoy a warm welcome and hearty, home-style cooking made from locally sourced ingredients. Typical menu options include haggis, neeps and tatties served with a whisky cream sauce (vegetarian option available); the ever popular Mharsanta steak and sausage pie or the hand-battered, Peterhead fish and thick-cut chips. To finish their meal, 5pm guests will also have a little sweet treat.
  • Trad music session. As guests tuck into their dinner, the musicians will be limbering up for an informal folk session combining upbeat, traditional tunes with contemporary folk numbers.
  • Join both of these fantastic Glasgow wonders for an authentic taste of this city’s folk culture and music along with a delicious dinner.

Perfect night out

  • This Trad Trail package combines a delicious Scottish meal with a fun exploration of Glasgow’s folk music heritage.
  • It will make a great night out and would also make a fabulous Christmas present. Something to look forward to come the summer.
