Ian Duncan of Perth, Scotland, was voted Scotland’s “Music Tutor of the Year” in the Trad Music Awards gala ceremony at Dumfries, Scotland, on November 28th. The Haddington Pipe Band was named Scottish Pipe Band of the Year also.
The awards are decided by popular vote. Duncan was up against three other Scottish music teachers, ranging in specialties from penny whistle to fiddle.
Haddington was nominated in the Pipe Band of the Year category along with Boghall & Bathgate, Inveraray & District and Strathclyde Police. Haddington had won an award previously for Scottish event of the year.
In the “Event of the Year” category, the Hebridean Celtic Festival beat out the World Pipe Band Championships and two other nominees for the prize.
Nominations in each category are decided by a committee from the Hands Up For Trad organization, taken from submissions received throughout the year.
