Admiral Fallow, Steve Mason and Mungo’s Hi-Fi will perform at ‘Live at the Longlist’, a brand new event exclusively announcing The SAY Award 2017 Longlist.
On Wednesday 24th May, The SAY (Scottish Album of the Year) Award 2017 Longlist will be revealed in front of a live audience at Glasgow’s O₂ ABC. Each of the twenty Scottish albums announced will be in the running for the £20,000 grand prize, as well as the coveted title of Scottish Album of the Year 2017.
Tickets go on sale at 10am on Wednesday 12th April, and will be available at sayaward.com.
Robert Kilpatrick, Projects and Operations Manager at the Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA), said: “To announce this year’s SAY Award Longlist, we’re delighted to introduce this fantastic new live music event in Glasgow, allowing music fans to engage with the award more than ever before.”
Singer-songwriter Steve Mason was Shortlisted in 2016 for his album “Meet the Humans”, 2014 for “Monkey Minds in The Devils Time”, and Longlisted in 2012 for “Ghosts Outside” with Dennis Bovell. “Meet the Humans”, Steve’s latest album, is an eclectic mix of dance, pop, folk, dub and deep house influences. His last Glasgow show at the Art School in October was a complete sell-out.
Glaswegian chamber popsters Admiral Fallow formed in 2007 and released their debut album “Boots Met My Face” in 2011, and its successor, “Tree Bursts In Snow“, the following year (shortlisted for The SAY Award 2013). Their third record, “Tiny Rewards” received many plaudits since its release in May 2015, and was longlisted for the SAY Award in 2016.
Back in 2012, Glaswegian based production house Mungo’s Hi Fi were shortlisted for the inaugural SAY Award with “Forward Ever”. They will be joined by reggae MC, YT, to perform a live DJ set at ‘Live at the Longlist’.
The Longlist will be further whittled down to a shortlist of just 10 albums, one of which will be chosen by the public during a 72-hour online vote and 9 chosen by judges. The shortlist will be announced on June 15th as part of a BBC Quay Sessions show, with the award ceremony then taking place on June 28th in the surroundings of Paisley’s elegant Town Hall, in support of Paisley’s bid to become UK City of Culture 2021. The winning artist will pick up a £20,000 cash prize, provided by long term Award partner Creative Scotland. The nine runners up will each be awarded a £1,000 prize, as well as an exclusively designed piece of artwork from the SAY Award Design Commission.
