Barrowland Ballroom

Barrowland Ballroom
Don't let the garish neon sign fool you -- the Barrlowland Ballroom is not a cheesy casino but rather one of Glasgow's leading music venues, found in the city's steadily gentrifying East End. The former 1960s dancehall has traded in sock-hops for rock shows, with its sprung floors and ace acoustics providing a backdrop for bigger musical acts, from Robbie Williams to the Pixies.

Twin Atlantic

Twin Atlantic are an alternative rock band from Glasgow. 
 ‘Transparency’ is Sam McTrusty spilling his guts on everything from marriage, male friendship and the absurdity of social media to parenthood, medication and his mum. Written in strained circumstances and recorded remotely with Sam’s mate and mentor Jacknife Lee, the album arrived more by accident than design when the world went into lockdown in Spring 2020. 
 For an album made quietly in lockdown, Transparency is begging to be played loud and live. Bold, adventurous, and a load of fun. This is just the start of a new era for Twin Atlantic.

The Elephant Sessions

Elephant Sessions transcend boundaries and shake the very foundations of expectation. Exploding onto the indie folk scene to unparalleled effect with their last album All We Have Is Now, the band have since appeared at some of the world’s most notable venues and festivals. Winning multiple awards in 2018, releasing their third album in 2019 and returning from their Australian Tour at the beginning of 2020, the band planned to again head out on the road to perform a few dates across the UK. Then came lockdown. It takes more than a worldwide pandemic to stop this band though! With help from Creative Scotland, Elephant Sessions filmed their Lockdown Special in late 2020 in Ironworks in Inverness. This went on to be one of the most viewed events of the Celtic Connections 2021 online festival. Watch out for this band – they have transformed traditional music!
