The Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame was started in 2005 to celebrate our musicians and industry people who have made Scottish traditional music what it is today. Since then Hands Up for Trad have added extra categories to celebrate people who work in other parts of our community including Services to Community in 2015 and Services to Scots, Services to Collecting in 2016.
