From folk to funk, pop to punk, this compilation of bite-sized stories shines a light on the key people, venues and gigs that have shaped the city’s music scene. From Bowie to the Bay City Rollers, Edinburgh’s Greatest Hits touches on the big names as well as revealing some lesser-known legends and tall tales.
