Would Edinburgh’s Old Town be itself without showcasing a talented variety of live music? That’s why, at McGonagall’s, we have a selection of brilliant and skillful musicians playing several days of the week.

Calling all cool cats of Edinburgh! Had a long week of seeing the sights and wanting to relax and unwind? Sundays and Mondays at McGonagall’s create a chilled atmosphere with music from John Hunt. From expertly performed slide blues, to old familiar classics, to a few of our favourite James Bond theme songs – he can do it. He has even recieved a highly positive review from Jools Holland, so you can guarantee his music will not disappoint.

Wanting to hear some refreshingly different live music? Thursdays see Graeme Mearns grace us with his versatility to perform several different styles or genres. Playing a cross section of popular music in all its forms, from swing and jazz to rock ‘n’ roll, 60s, 70s and 80s classics, and beyond… If you want to hear some throwbacks, this is the night for you!

Waiting for that weekend feeling? On Fridays and Saturdays with us, you will find classic singalongs from the gifted Liam Stuart – the perfect ambiance to get you set for a night on the town or to finish the night! With a range from Billy Joel to Jimi Hendrix, and back to Cage the Elephant. Switching between classic and percussive guitar styles throughout the night. His eclectic setlist interspersed with originals never fails to entertain.

All of this can be experienced whilst exploring our extensive drinks list.
