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
