MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards 2022 Nominees

What a fantastic evening at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards on Sunday night at the Caird Hall in Dundee, and though the festival didn't come away with first prize, it was an absolute honour to be nominated alongside such incredible national events. Huge congratulations to winners HebCelt!

We'd like to congratulate all of the nominees and winners on the night, along with the fabulous performers, crew, organisers and everyone at the Caird Hall for an oustanding night celebrating traditional music, arts and culture in Scotland.

Here's tae oor National poet

Born on this day in 1759 in Alloway, in Ayrshire, and laid to rest in Dumfries where he died on 21st July 1796, we hope you'll settle down with haggis, neeps and tatties for tea and raise a dram, and hopefully a song and/or poem or two along the way, to celebrate the life and work of Robert Burns.
