Hands Up for Trad have made a last call for nom­i­na­tions for this year’s MG ALBA Scots Trad Mu­sic Awards.

The pub­lic have un­til Sun­day Oc­to­ber 14 to nom­i­nate in each of the 18 cat­e­gories, in­clud­ing Com­poser of the Year Award spon­sored by PRS for Mu­sic, the Bel­haven Bur­sary for In­no­va­tion in Mu­sic which is equalled in cash only by the Mer­cury Mu­sic Prize and was last year awarded to neo-trad quin­tet Ele­phant Ses­sions.

The award of £25,000 is ac­com­pa­nied by a craft beer brewed in the win­ner’s name. The win­ners will be un­veiled in front of an au­di­ence of mu­sic fans and in­dus­try at Perth Con­cert Hall on De­cem­ber 1.

The evening will be broad­cast live on BBC ALBA.
