Back in full swing

Phil said: “We can’t wait to hit the road again and bring the Christmas Songbook to Glasgow once more. Things were a little different last year with our first ever Virtual Christmas Songbook and I’m delighted that we’ll be back in full swing in front of live audiences again this year.

“The show has grown so much in the last 15 years and has become a seasonal staple for people across Scotland. As always I’ll be joined by my old friends, who happen to be some of the best folk artists in the country. We’ll be bringing festive cheer to Glasgow – we can’t wait to see people up and dancing!”
