It wasn't to be...this time!

What a fantastic evening at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards on Sunday night at the Caird Hall in Dundee, and though the festival didn't come away with first prize, it was an absolute honour to be nominated alongside such incredible national events. Huge congratulations to winners HebCelt!
