Can music make the world a better place? Can it really belong to anyone? Can the magic, mystery and incertitude of music stop wars, rehabilitate the broken, unite, educate or inspire? 

From Jimi Hendrix playing Machine Gun at The Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 to the Bataclan under siege in 2015, in When Words Fail, award-winning war correspondent Ed Vulliamy has met the legends, and asks when words fail, might we turn to music? 

There’s only one way to find out, and that is to listen...

Chaired by Magnus Linklater, Senior Writer, The Times Scotland


Glasgow Royal Concert Hall

2 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3NY

Open tomorrow 10:00am - 6:00pm
