The Scotia Est. 1792

The Scotia Music

The Scotia has been one of Glasgow's foremost music venues for the last forty years. Originally The Scotia was famous for folk music and it became a home from home for musicians who all came to jam together and listen to bands play. Such luminaries as Billy Connolly and Gerry Rafferty, then going under the name of The Humblebums, were regular Scotia punters as were The Poets and various members of The Sensational Alex Harvey Band and the late Hamish Imlach





We have a mixture of resident and non resident bands. We set you up for the weekend on Friday with Frank O'Hagan who gives us standards old and new as well as some of his own songs, all played in his own inimitable style and sounding different from week to week, depending what musicians have popped into The Scotia to play with him. Saturday is gven over to non resident bands playing everything from rock to blues and all points in between. On Sundays at 5pm we have a good old session from Three Card Trick and we finish the week with another guest band at 8pm.

One of our most successful events has been the annual Singer-Songwriter Competition which has thrown up some very talented musicians, some of which now play in the pub regularly.
