OVER £148,500 was raised for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins Scotland at the 19th edition of the annual Scottish Music Awards.
Sponsored by energy company SSE, the awards are the main fundraising event for the charity, which was founded in 1996. Auctioned items included a Craig Campbell portrait of Debbie Harry, signed by the artiste.
Performing at the event were Emeli Sandé, Nina Nesbitt, The Temperance Movement, Lewis Capaldi, Hipsway and Tom Walker, who each won an award.
Other winners included The Waterboys for the SSE Outstanding Contribution to Music, and Jools Holland for the Special Recognition Award. Rolling Stones co-founder, pianist and road manager Ian Stewart was given the Scottish Music Hall of Fame award, with a special video message from the band. The award was collected by Stewart’s wife and son.
“Every year, the event exceeds all our expectations as we see the best of the Scottish music industry come together to support our charity and be more and more generous every year,” says Nordoff Robbins Scotland chairman, promoter and venue owner Donald MacLeod.
The awards took place at Glasgow’s Old Fruitmarket on 2 December.
