Trad music bands miss out

Share this article

Borders nominees walked away empty-handed from last Saturday’s Scots Trad Music Awards in Perth Concert Hall.

All-female group the Shee, made up of Shona Mooney, Olivia Ross, Laura-Beth Salter, Amy Thatcher, Rachel Newton and Lillias Kinsman-Blake, failed to pick up the Scottish Folk Band of the Year title.

And Treacherous Orchestra, who include Birgham’s Innes Watson in their line-up, were beaten to the Live Act of the 
Year award by Red Hot Chilli Pipers.
