Glas­gow win­ners ga­lore

The Oban Times - - LEISURE -

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.
