  The Glasgow Independent Music Scene

Mitchell Gallery in Glasgow


This independent music thing. Not quite like the big business stuff you are used to. No big budget production. No big marketing budget. No sponsorship deals with major soft drinks producers. So, how do those bands and performers that you see when you are out and about go about making their music available to you?

Bluesbunny decided to venture out into the wilds of Glasgow and investigate matters. We interviewed a selection of personalities in the collective madness known as the music scene. Hopefully, it will also explain a bit about how things actually work. It also gave us the opportunity to be sociable and drink beer. Not sure about the sociable bit but we did quite well at the beer drinking. We would also like to thank all the participants for their co-operation in this series of articles.
