SSE Scottish Music Awards SSE Hydro, Glasgow December 1
Annie Lennox and Susan Boyle are to be presented with the Scottish Music Hall of Fame Award at the SSE Scottish Music Awards on December 1.
The Hall of Fame Award is a special addition for this 20th anniversary of the awards, the main fundraising event for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins Scotland.
Nominees and performers include Eclair FiFi, Kyle Falconer, Snow Patrol, Mark Knopfler, Amy Macdonald, Tom Grennan, Kyle Falconer and The Snuts.
Susan Boyle, who is opening the show, said: “The Scots are one of the best audiences in the world, so being in my home country on the SEC stage will be wonderful. I’m also incredibly honoured and speechless that I will be inducted into the Scottish Music Hall of Fame.”
Electronic Music Award nominee Eclair Fifi began DJ-ing in her home city of Edinburgh in the 1990s, playing on pirate radio stations and at raves.
“I’m so overwhelmed to be nominated,” says Fifi, who plans to set up her record label next year. “When you’ve been in the music industry for the best part of 20 years just grafting away any kind of recognition can be a bit humbling or alien to me but believe me, I’m so incredibly grateful! It is even more special when it’s connected to such a worthwhile cause like Nordoff Robbins Scotland.”
Annie Lennox is among the performers and nominees at this year’s Scottish Music Awards, held at Glasgow’s Hydro for the first time
