Popular 5pm restaurant Mharsanta
have been working with the guided walk company Glasgow Music City Tours to
produce a folk music-themed evening including a walking tour, two or three
course dinner and live music.
Taking place from 6pm on Friday 17th May, the Trad Trail Evening Experience starts from Mharsanta with a one hour walking tour of the Merchant City.
A big hit at Celtic Connections for the last four years, this tour is a cask strength celebration of Glasgow's traditional music scene.
Exploring some of Glasgow's oldest streets, the tour tells tales of the songwriters and storytellers who have shaped the city’s vibrant folk music culture.
Contemporary Scottish restaurant
From Burns to Billy Connolly via the Broomhill Bums and beyond, the tour will follow the history of our most prominent folkies.
The story telling will continue as guests settle in at Mharsanta, a contemporary Scottish restaurant on Bell Street.
Guests can choose between a two or three course menu packed with hearty home-style dishes made with locally sourced ingredients.
We're going for the haggis Scotch egg followed by the rump steak with egg and chips. If we have any space left, there is an order of cranachan with our name on it.
Of course, there are veggie/vegan options available.
Trad music session
As diners polish off their dinner, the musicians will be limbering up for a tuneful, 90 minute trad music session.
Combining traditional folk songs with contemporary folk numbers, we can't think of a more harmonious way to spend your Friday night.
Including the walking tour and live music, the Trad Trail evening costs £34.50 per person with a two course meal and £39.50 with a three course meal.
Tickets are available here.
