Art Boss, Renfrewshire Leisure’s group of young arts producers, have collaborated with Lateral North to create a free audio tour which takes listeners on a journey through Paisley’s musical history: from Paisley’s medieval abbey to Robert Tannahill, forward to Paisley’s Punk scene and beyond.

Launched as part of The Spree 2021, the tour lasts approximately an hour and can be downloaded to your mobile device via the free walking app GeoTourist. Once downloaded, you can find Paisley’s Music Tour using the QR Code below or by using the search function in GeoTourist.

The tour sets off from Forbes Place and takes approximately an hour to complete. When following the tour, please take care when crossing roads and be aware of trip hazards, particularly on Brown’s Lane and Meetinghouse Lane, which are both uneven in places.

To complement the tour Art Boss have created a Paisley Music playlist – please see below.
