Lewis Capaldi, Biffy Clyro, Texas and Wet Wet Wet are amongst just some of the performers announced for 2020’s virtual Specsavers Scottish Music Awards.

Bringing some of the country’s biggest stars together, the awards hope to raise urgent funds for Nordoff Robbins – a music therapy charity severely impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Traditionally the biggest night in Scotland’s music calendar, the awards – now in their 22nd year – will be hosted live by Edith Bowman from SWG3 in Glasgow’s West End, featuring brand new performances as well as footage from previous sets.

Joining the line-up on November 28 for a special St. Andrew’s Day celebration are; Biffy Clyro, Dougie MacLean, George Bowie, Graeme Park’s Hacienda Classical Orchestra, Gun, HYYTS,  Lewis Capaldi, Stephanie Cheape, Texas and Wet Wet Wet. They join the previously announced Amy Macdonald, kitti and Luke La Volpe.

Viewers will be able to tune in for a celebration of Scottish music via the Nordoff Robbins website and social media pages from 7pm on the day.

Biffy Clyro said, “It’s really special to be nominated at the Specsavers Scottish Music Awards for our album ‘A Celebration of Endings’ and we thank them for this honour.

“We’ve been long-time supporters of the incredible work Nordoff Robbins do and we know music really does have the power to change lives, so we’re delighted to be involved in this year’s event.”
