After the award-winning success of their self-titled debut album, Scottish folk-rock sextet Mànran followed up in style with 2013′s The Test, and confirmed their burgeoning international reputation at 2014′s Australian Celtic Music Awards, where they were crowned International Artist of the Year. Their richly accomplished blend of traditional and original songs, in both Gaelic and English, with powerhouse instrumentals, continues to grow in both force and finesse.
‘One of the most exciting of the new crop of Scottish traditional bands, they’ve got it all, the songs and the tunes.’ – Eddie Barcan, Cambridge Folk Festival
‘Mànran are an exceptionally talented bunch of young guys that are taking the music world by storm with their high energy, stomping tunes and phenomenal gaelic and english songs.’ – Donald Shaw, Celtic Connections
‘A thrilling live act, Mànran are one of Scotland’s best traditional outfits and their star is most definitely on the rise. Watch them go.’ – Daily Record
The dazzling Danish fiddler Harald Haugaard unites a passion for his native traditional music with a conservatoire-trained technique, performing here with a handpicked line-up of top Nordic musicians.
“Impishly effervescent and majestically beautiful, matching all-out gusto with chamber-classical grace.” – The Scotsman

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
