Glasgow winners galore
Other winners who made a triumphant return to Glasgow included Partick Folk Club for Club of the Year, Iona Fyfe for Scots Singer of the Year, Assynt for Up and Coming Artist of the Year and Drygate Brewery for Venue of the Year.
The Belhaven Bursary for Innovation in Scottish Music was deservedly won by the brilliant Talisk, a three-piece band featuring concertina, fiddle and guitar, who also spend a lot of their time playing in the vibrant session scene around Glasgow.
Duncan Chisolm had an extremely succesful night - claiming the prestigious Album of the Year award and being named Composer of the Year.
Live Act of the Year was won by my good friends, The Elephant Sessions, while Scottish Dance Band of the Year was won by Susan MacFadyen who plays regularly at cèilidhs and dances around Glasgow and also in the Park Bar.
Dàimh were named Scottish Folk Band of the Year and Inveraray and District Pipe Band are the Scottish Pipe Band of the Year.
Finally, and perhaps most deserving of all, Runrig were given an award for Services to Gaelic and, after they called it a day on a 45-year career in August, I imagine it would be difficult to find anyone who would disagree with that award.
