SAY Awards Announce ‘Live At The Longlist’ Gig

It's all happening at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut on Wednesday 1 August and tickets are available now...

The organisers of the prestigious Scottish Album Of The Year Award have today announced that their longlist of nominated artists will be revealed in front of a live audience at Glasgow’s legendary King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, on Wednesday 1 August

‘Live At The Longlist’ will feature live performances from previously nominated artists, including a special collaborative set from Stina Tweeddale of Honeyblood and Carla J. Easton of TeenCanteen, as well as a live performance from Emma Pollock, who was shortlisted for the SAY Award in 2016 for her album In Search Of Harperfield. 

On the night, journalist/broadcaster Nicola Meighan will reveal the twenty outstanding Scottish albums, which make the SAY Award Longlist for 2018. Following the announcement, Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite will be performing a cinematic and expansive DJ set into the late hours. 

All proceeds from the evening will be donated to Help Musicians Scotland, The Say Award’s charity partner for 2018. 

A record number of 253 albums were submitted for this year’s main prize. The shortlist of twenty will be whittled down to ten, and the eventual winner of The SAY Award 2018 will be announced in a ceremony at Paisley’s Town Hall on Thursday 6 September.
