A Scottish musician is set to dive into the history of one of Glasgow's most popular music venues with a new 90-minute documentary.

Musician Iain 'Spanish' MacKay, from the Isle of Lewis, will be leading a BBC ALBA documentary, The Barrowland Roar.

Featuring the likes of Johnny Marr, Franz Ferdinand, and The Fratellis, Ian speaks with stars who have previously played the stage, staff members that work in the venue and fans that have flocked to see their favourite artists perform.

The documentary, which is set to hit screens at 9pm on New Year’s Day, will go back in time to where it all began.

Glasgow Times:

Detailing the venue's birth in 1934, right through to its "poor reputation" branding in the 60s, audiences will travel through time to see the hundreds of stars that have played on the famous stage, including U2, Amy Winehouse, David Bowie, Katy Perry, and Bob Dylan.

In the documentary, Ian chats with Simple Minds, Amy MacDonald, and Christy Moore to find out more of why the Barrowland Ballroom "is the best venue in the world to play."

The documentary will also hightlight the history of the Barras Market as Ian chats to manager Tom Joyes and current owner Anne Dick, and will accompany doorman Willie Thomson as he gets inked with the famous Barrowland sign.

Ian will then round off the documentary with a "dream" of his, as he joins Trail West to sing his own songs to a packed Barrowland audience.
