This unbelievable night on Glasgow’s riverside will take place on a number of nights this autumn, with the next available date on November 29 and December 22– and you can find your tickets here! You’ll hear tributes to some of the best jazz singers and musicians at these candlelight concerts, such as Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone, as well as new jazz tracks, all whilst on the calming shores of the Clyde. Plus, these stunning performances will be bathed in candlelight to create a relaxing atmosphere that will not only light up the Glenlee, but also lighten up your mood too. Last year was a pain in the boat, so why not hit the reset button with a night of extraordinary jazz music in the most remarkable setting?

Having taken to the water as a bulk cargo carrier in 1896 and also circumnavigating the world four times, the Glenlee is one of the only five Clyde-built ships still managing to stay afloat today, and has become a special spot for maritime themed events and activities. But one of Glasgow’s most historic floating gems will become a one of a kind jazz club when lit by the soft glow of candlelight, and filled with the sound of the finest Jazz classics playing live. They’ll be no sea shanties or scrubbing the deck (unless you really want to), just plain sailing soulful music that will see your worries float away. Be careful not to rock the boat though as you try to resist the urge to tap your feet to the brilliant beats you’ll hear onboard!
