If you missed the fantastic MG ALBA Scots Trad Awards at the Caird Hall earlier this month, then fear not. Extended highlights of the event will be shown on BBC ALBA on Wednesday December 28 from 9.00pm and will be available on BBC iPlayer thereafter. The programme is presented by Mary Ann Kennedy, Tony Kearney and Linda MacLeod who meet the musicians, winners and stars of the event, both onstage and behind the scenes.
The distinguished awards saw stars of the Scottish music scene take to the Caird Hall, for the second year in a row, to celebrate and honour the very best of traditional talent. The unmissable evening saw performances from some of the biggest names in Scottish traditional music, including The Scott Wood Band, Songs of Separation, Tryst, Mohsen Amini – who was crowned BBC Radio Scotland’s Young Traditional Musician 2016 – and international folk band, Dallahan, before the night concluded with a brilliant ceilidh. It’s easy to see why it’s hailed as one of the biggest events in Scotland’s cultural calendar.
