There is some fantastic live music at the Viking Festival on the esplanade.
Look out for the welcome return of Reely Jiggered on Sunday September 9 at 1.30pm on the esplanade.
The 02 ABC Winners of SoundWave Music Competition 2014, are bursting with talent, alive with creativity and live to perform. They are inspired by Celtic Folk music, intrigued by World beats and melodies and drawn to an interesting and unique fusion of funk, rock, pop and jazz taking folk music to new heights.
To go to one of their gigs is to be taken on a journey through the streets of Mexico, the salsa clubs of Cuba, the furious fiddling of gypsies, and haunting melodies of Celtic Britain mixed with the soaring voice of a diva soprano, the beauty of acoustic instruments, revved up by driving bass lines, wah wah pedals and rocked up rhythms.
Hailed as one of Scotland’s most interesting and entrepreneurial bands, they have performed at International Festivals including Celtival Festival in Italy, Celtic Connections, Schotten Radio's T @ the Tower (Germany), and as far as Mexico and Japan.
Their self-titled debut album, released in 2011 to critical acclaim, has received airplay in Australia, Germany, Mexico and America and has been featured on BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio Scotland. Their second album "Kaleidoscope" was “Album of the Week” in September 2014 on Celtic Music Radio with Alan Grant describing it as “such a stunning collection of music by the most talented of musicians. 
Other highlights include The McNeil Sisters, Bavarian Stompers Live Cabaret, Arkansas Ramblers, Strathclyde University Jazz Orchestra, Les Gitanes Gypsy Swing/Jazz Manouche, and Clyde Coast Strathspey and Reel Society.
