The Script and Frightened Rabbit up for SSE Scottish Music Awards

The SSE Scottish Music Awards have announced the final nominees for this year’s 20th ceremony – and Frightened Rabbit and The Script are among those up for awards.

The Script are nominated for Best International Artist sponsored by Specsavers, Frightened Rabbit for the Song Writing Award sponsored by King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and Gary Clark for the Music Business Award, sponsored by the Sir Reo Stakis Foundation.

These artists join a host of nominees from across the country, including Eclair Fifi (Electronic Music Award), Kyle Falconer (Best Album), Mark Knopfler (Living Legend Award), Snow Patrol (SSE Artist of the Year), The Snuts (Breakthrough Artist), Tom Grennan (Best UK Artist Award), with Annie Lennox and Susan Boyle also set to be honoured with the Scottish Music Hall of Fame Award.

The best of Scotland’s music industry will come together to celebrate a phenomenal year, while raising vital funds for the UK’s largest music therapy charity, Nordoff Robbins.

Guests will be treated to performances by some of the country’s biggest stars, showing their support for the charity as Mark Knopfler, Snow Patrol, Susan Boyle, Amy Macdonald, Tom Grennan, Kyle Falconer and The Snuts all take to the stage.

Following a historic stint at Glasgow’s legendary Old Fruitmarket, the SSE Scottish Music Awards will this year take place at the iconic SEC on Saturday 1 December.

With organisers pulling some of the biggest acts from across the UK to Glasgow to celebrate a very special birthday for the biggest night in the Scottish music industry, the venue will offer fans an incredible experience with an even bigger stage in place.

All funds raised at the SSE Scottish Music Awards will go towards the delivery of music therapy in Scotland and enable Nordoff Robbins Scotland to provide music therapists and sessions to those who need it most.
