Paisley Underground

Posted on September 29, 2011


Following the success of last year Paisley Underground has returned with a loaded calender of events for music lovers.

Paisley Arts Centre is the venue for a host of gigs, workshops and panels, which will run into November.

The line up overall is extremely impressive, with gigs from Bill Wells and Aiden Moffat, The Magick Circle, and Strike The Colours, and Idlewild legend Rod Jones hosting a songwriting workshop.

The panel events are free to attend, and will see some of Scotland’s best loved musical minds take part.

Oh, and some muppet with a blog (me), but don’t let that put you off!

My ramblings aside, the panels should be an excellent resource, and a great chance to pick the minds of the likes of Vic Galloway, Louis Abbot, and folk from The List, Chemikal Underground and Creative Scotland.
