Hogmanay celebrations live from the Old Fruitmarket, Glasgow. Featuring music from new and established acts and special films to mark momentous events of 2014.

Join Jackie Bird for a spectacular end to the year on Hogmanay Live 2014. It's been an incredible year for Scotland, and this packed programme will give 2014 the send off it deserves with live music form some of Scotland's best performers, an emotional look back at the events of the year and a brilliant party atmosphere live from the Old Fruitmarket in the centre of Glasgow.

There's a mix of great new acts and some traditional favourites lined up to get the party started wherever you are, plus some very special moments to mark the end of a momentous year. From the Old Fruitmarket, one of the musical highlights of the year will be marked when King Creosote, aka Kenny Anderson, performs two of the fabulous tracks from his beautiful 'From Scotland with Love' project, combining his own music with some of the best Scottish film archive, it's an ideal moment for Hogmanay - great tunes and an ample serving of nostalgia.

To get us all dancing the electrifying Blazin' Fiddles will be on stage with their lightning fast fiddles and guitars, there will also be some of the best live music from Edinburgh as, for the first time, the show features some of the great tunes keeping the crowd warm on the streets of the capital from Scotland's own Twin Atlantic.

And, of course, no Hogmanay would be complete without two of the country's favourite traditional musicians, Phil Cunningham and Aly Bain. As well as all that great live music there will be made some specially made films looking back at the momentous events of 2014, and, for the very first time, a very special countdown to mark the final few moments of 2014. There's also the chance to get your New Year messages and selfies onto the show via social media using the hashtag #BBCHogmanay.

It's a great show, and the party starts right here, so where every you are, join Jackie for the best party of the year on Hogmanay 2014.
