Edinburgh’s Greatest Hits – The Story Of The Capital’s Music (Edinburgh Music Tours)

By | Published on Tuesday 7 August 2018

This was an enjoyable morning walking round parts of the city that busy people usually miss, hearing great stories about the Edinburgh music scene from friendly people who know it well. There are many overlapping layers to learn about; the Festival Theatre was originally an old music hall that went on to host bands such as T-Rex in the seventies, and there’s a strong personal connection between The Beatles, David Bowie and Edinburgh. There are also lots of intriguing stories to hear about local bands, from The Bay City Rollers to The Scars. Many of the old buildings are still there, so go along and immerse yourself in the lively Edinburgh music scene, treading in the footsteps of some of the world’s finest musicians.

Outside Main Entrance To National Museum Of Scotland, until 25 Aug.
