Episode 6 - Stephen Allen (National Museum of Scotland) & Jonathan Trew (Glasgow/Edinburgh City Music Tours)
Jun 15, 2018
In this sixth episode, the Talking Feet team tells the untold story of Edinburgh’s live music scene with Stephen Allen of the National Museum of Scotland and Jonathan Trew from Glasgow and Edinburgh Music Tours. We explore both the RipItUp exhibition at NMS, the new Edinburgh Music Tour and their aim to reveal hidden or forgotten stories of Edinburgh. Interestingly it proves impossible to discuss live music and culture in Edinburgh without also referring to Glasgow, where we return to in our next episode. More on that later but for now, we find ourselves in the National Museum of Scotland where together, Jonathan and Stephen make the point that popular music is an art form, a gateway to a wider world, it helps shape society...
