Twelve young musicians from all over Scotland took part in the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician Award on Sunday 30th October.

In the end after lots of deliberation they chose the following finalists.
Aidan Moodie – guitar, song (Orkney)
Ailis Sutherland – pipes (Kirriemuir)
Amy Laurenson – piano (Shetland)
Madeleine Stewart – fiddle (New England, USA)
Mairi Mcgillivray – song (Islay)
