Govan music festival returns with a wholesome programme geared to tickle all pickles. Eight school choirs have joined together to perform the premiere of climate change song cycle, ‘Renew’, and who isn’t in need of a little renewal? Especially intriguing is Freed Up, a drug and alcohol-free string quartet performance that features rappers Solareye, Empress and Freestyle master. Plus Musicians in Exile and Ando Glasgow have teamed up with The Glasgow Barons Balkan brass and string selection to show everyone just how much Glasgow’s multiculturalism enriches the community. Check our interview with festival organiser Paul MacAlindin on the changes in the area, empowering people through music and the plans for this year’s festival.
