The longlist ceremony has been announced for Scotland’s national music prize, The SAY Award.
This year’s nominees for the prize – previously won by the likes of Anna Meredith and Young Fathers – will be announced at The Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh on 26th July, at an event which will host a special collaboration between Idlewild’s Rod Jones and Modern Studies, and performances from C Duncan and Kobi Onyame.
Rod says: “I’m really excited to be collaborating with Modern Studies. I’m a big fan of their ‘Welcome Strangers’ album and the way they interweave folk, classical and pop. I look forward to seeing what we can bring to each other’s songs…”
Album submissions close at midnight tomorrow (31st May), visit SAYAWARD.COM for more information.
