Tartan Clef Awards

The View, King Creosote and Mott the Hoople confirmed for The Homecoming Scotland Tartan Clef Awards plus EXCLUSIVE Lloyd Cole and the Commotions performance

Friday 27th November sees the Homecoming Scotland Tartan Clef Awards take to the stage at the SECC in Glasgow in what promises to be a fantastic evening of entertainment as well as a great chance to raise money for Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy in Scotland.

The sell out show features some fantastic performances, exclusive collaborations and as each year, a host of contributors to Scotland’s rich musical heritage will be honored on the night with a prestigious Tartan Clef presented by celebrities, sponsors and ambassadors of the charity.

2009’s eclectic line up will see Mott the Hoople perform as part of their 40th anniversary tour as Ian Hunter, originally from Hamilton, makes the trip home to Scotland to help celebrate the finale to Homecoming 2009.

Also coming home to Scotland for an exclusive Tartan Clef’s appearance are Glasgow’s own Lloyd Cole & the Commotions who are reuniting on stage especially for the show. Their seminal 1984 debut album Rattlesnakes has appeared in NME’s Top 100 Albums of All Time and is regularly quoted as an influence by artists as diverse as Tori Amos and the Manic Street Preachers: this performance is sure to be as important a landmark.
Young upstarts The View will take a break from recording their new album to perform alongside the celebrated King Creosote, with yet more special performances revealed on the night.

Previous Tartan Clef Award winners include the likes of Paolo Nutini, Biffy Clyro, Lulu, Franz Ferdinand, Craig Armstrong and Edwyn Collins and this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever before as it moves to a new venue.

Donald Macleod Chairman of the Fundraising Committee said: “We’re excited to have such a fantastic line-up for this year’s Homecoming Scotland Tartan Clef Awards. Last year’s awards raised £93,000 for Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy in Scotland and this year we hope to raise even more!”
Janet Halton, Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy Scotland adds:

"The money raised at the Tartan Clef Awards will ensure that Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy in Scotland can continue to develop and expand its work with hundreds of adults and children in need across the country. We are thrilled with the support we have received this year and look forward to the Awards ceremony on the 27th November, with so many exciting acts coming along on the night."

Michael Russell MSP, Minister for Culture, External Affairs and the Constitution said: “Our Year of Homecoming has been an exceptional year with over 400 events taking place the length and breadth of Scotland. Music has been a key ingredient in many of these events and it is fitting that Scotland's music is providing the soundtrack to the Homecoming Scotland Finale Celebrations. I am delighted that the Homecoming Tartan Clef Music Awards are part of those celebrations and I look forward to attending later this month.”

Scott Taylor, Chief Executive, Glasgow City Marketing Bureau said: “We’re very proud to continue our support of Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy in Scotland through the Tartan Clef Awards. Not only does the event help to raise money for a greatly-deserving cause which helps countless people throughout Scotland, it also reinforces Glasgow’s status as a UNESCO City of Music, profiling its cutting-edge style credentials.”

The Homecoming Scotland Tartan Clef Awards is the main fundraising event for the charity Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy in Scotland which works to support children and adults who have been affected by illness, disability and trauma. The charity works out of bases across Scotland including a new facility in the Angus area. Nordoff-Robbins receives no statutory funding so monies raised at this year’s awards and the other fundraising initiatives are hugely valued by the charity and those who benefit from the work they do. Last year’s awards raised £93,000 which goes direct to supporting the work of the charity in Scotland.
