People make Glasgow as they say – Incredible video shows open air ceilidh in Glasgow

AN INCREDIBLE video has captured the moment Scots take part in an open air ceilidh in Glasgow.

John Cumming captured the uplifting video outside Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow where over 60 people enjoyed the dance on Sunday.

The 21-year-old was excited to snap the incredible video which shows around 30 couples arm in arm embracing in an energetic Gay Gordons.

The pairs can be seen galivanting around the square to the toe tapping fiddles and upbeat Scottish music in front of the stunning red brick Kelvingrove. 

There are joyful people of all ages coming together to make the most of their chance for a heel-toe boogie.

The politics student shared the clip yesterday afternoon, writing: “I adore this city!” 

The amazing clip has been viewed over 21,000 times with over 700 likes and 145 shares from users who wished they could have joined in.
