“Julie to be honoured at Tartan Clef Awards”
Julie will make history this week when she becomes the first Gaelic artist to be honoured alongside pop and rock stars at the Scottish Music Awards.
She will join previous award winners including Annie Lennox, Edwyn Collins, Emeli Sandé, Paolo Nutini, Simple Minds and Wet Wet Wet when she is recognised for her services to the traditional music scene in Scotland at the ceremony at The Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow on Saturday 29 November.
Julie will also be performing with her band at the 16th annual awards, known as the “Tartan Clefs”, which raise funds for the music therapy charity Nordoff-Robbins Scotland.
The ceremony is not only a celebration of Scotland's diverse music industry, but also acts as the main source of funding for Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy in Scotland. The charity, that requires £600,000 a year to function, is a revolutionary programme that uses the healing powers of music to improve the lives of over 400 children and adults isolated by life limiting illnesses, disability and trauma including autism, dementia and Down's Syndrome, by enhancing communication, supporting change and nailing people to live more resourcefully and creatively.
