Scottish and international music stars will celebrate St. Andrew's Day in star studded fashion in Glasgow this year - all for charity. 

Nordoff Robbins have today announced the return of The Specsavers Scottish Music Awards for 2019, now in its 21st year. 

The charity has unveiled the first nominees and performers for this year’s awards, with the legendary Simple Minds set to take to the stage alongside one of the biggest breakthrough artists of the last year, Tom Walker as well as Joesef, one of Scotland’s most exciting emerging artists capturing huge industry buzz right now.

New for 2019, the awards will be hosted by Scotland’s very own Edith Bowman at Glasgow’s Old Fruitmarket on Saturday 30th November to honour and reward some of music’s biggest stars, whilst raising funds for the UK’s largest independent music therapy charity.

Jill McArthur, Chair of Specsavers in Scotland, said:

“We are delighted to support this year’s 2019 Specsavers Scottish Music Awards.

“The work of Nordoff Robbins and The Scottish Music Awards is a true inspiration to the people of Scotland which is why Specsavers has returned as headline sponsor of the event for this year.

“We look forward to working with both the event organisers and charity to ensure the 2019 awards are the most successful to-date and we wish all artists the best of luck on the evening.”

Some of the most legendary figures in Scottish music have been awarded over the years at the prestigious ceremony with previous winners including Paolo Nutini, Snow Patrol, Annie Lennox and Lewis Capaldi.
