This year’s Scots Trad Music Awards are fast approaching, and I feel so lucky that my bands Kinnaris Quintet and Ryan Young & Jenn Butterworth are nominated in the Folk Band of the Year category! Both bands have worked really hard this year, and I’m so proud of our achievements so far. Kinnaris Quintet have a new album, ‘Free One’ out now, Ryan has a fantastic album too and we’re planning a duo one very soon.
Also, I’ve been working a lot with Ross Ainslie and Ali Hutton this year. Their album Symbiosis II is in the shortlist for Album of the Year, as is Ross’ solo album Sanctuary. They’re both well worth a listen (actually all the albums on the list are fab!).
