The Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame is dedicated to giving acknowledgement and recognition to musicians and industry people who, by their dedication and hard work, have supported and influenced the development of Scottish traditional music during their lives. Launched at the Scots Trad Music Awards in December 2005, the membership of the Hall of Fame will be added to annually.
Visit our dedicated Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame website to read about the many inductees. We have commissioned portraits by photographer Louis DeCarlo and music writers Rob Adams, Sue Wilson and Jim Gilchrist have compiled a short history of each inductee.
