Scots Trad Music Awards Winners Announced
Published January 4, 2006

The Scots Trad Music Awards ceremony took place recently at the Queen's Hall in Edinburgh. Mary Ann Kennedy and Iain Anderson were our hosts and the great and the good from the folk world were there to honour musical talent and those who support the traditional music sector in Scotland.

This is the 3rd year of the awards and we were treated to stunning performances from Blazin' Fiddles, Gaelic singer Maggie MacInnes and friends (including Maggie's mum, Flora MacNeil), the superb young musicians and singers from Plockton National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music, Kirkwall City Pipe Band - showing off their vocal and piping talents, Stuart Cassells and his band, TMSA Young Trad Musicians (featuring all the finalists of the 2005 BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician Award), The Occasionals..to name but a few! Special mention must also be made of Paddy Moloney who, on accepting his induction to the Hall of Fame (see below), delighted the audience by playing a tune on his whistle.

There were two Award categories that were not open to the public vote.

The Hamish Henderson Award For Services To Traditional Music goes to Ian Green, Greentrax Records.

The Scots Traditional Music Hall of Fame sponsored by BBC Radio Shetland

Paddy Moloney


For this new Hall Of Fame initiative Hands Up For Trad's steering group has inducted five Scots and one international artist. Each must be a performer who has been in the traditional music business for more than 20 years. Instead of the International Presentation that was awarded in 2004, this year a place in the Hall Of Fame has been reserved for an international artist. The recipient is Paddy Moloney, and The Battlefield Band wrote a tune for Paddy as part of the award.
