On Saturday 14th June BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician Award 2014 winner Robyn Stapleton will sing in the Queen’s Baton as it arrives over the border into Coldstream. She will be singing Hands Up for Trad’s Here’s To All Our Common Wealth, a song written to be passed around Scotland by choirs as part of the Big Song Relay. I believe if you tune into the BBC on Saturday morning at 7.30am you will hear Robyn sing along with Innes Watson (guitar), Euan Burton (bass) and Fraser Stone (drums).
Now if you see yourself on the telly or making CD or people recognising you in the street (or in your living room) maybe you should consider entering the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician Award. You will have a great time, meet new friends, perform in front of brilliant crowd in Coulter and have an opportunity to make it through the final at Celtic Connections in February 2015. You can enter here! The closing date is Friday 4th July.
