TMSA Young Trad Tour
The TMSA undertakes a national tour with the talented young traditional musicians who appeared in the annual BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year Award, along with the winner of the previous year. A CD is produced as part of the project each year – and available to buy during the Tour as well as download.
The Tour takes the young musicians back to their home towns as well as other parts of Scotland so they can inspire others and thank their communities for the support they have had over the years.
The 2018 group comprises West Lothian singer, Hannah Rarity, the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2018; with Rory Matheson – piano (Drumbeg); Amy Papinransky – voice (Keith); David Shedden – bagpipes (Glasgow); Luc McNally – guitar & voice (Dipton) plus Charlie Stewart – fiddle (Perthshire), the 2017 winner. NB: finalist Ali Levack – whistles/pipes (Maryburgh) – was not able to make the Tour but was part of the recording of the Tour CD.
