Celebrate Scottish Music at the SSE Scottish Music Awards

There’s still time to get tickets to one of Scotland’s most highly-anticipated music events of the year, the SSE Scottish Music Awards. The star-studded show is in its 19th year and will be held at Glasgow’s iconic Old Fruitmarket venue on 2nd December.

The Old Fruitmarket is in the very heart of Glasgow’s Merchant City which is the go to part of the city for award winning restaurants, trendy bars and stylish clubs. The Merchant city is also known for its cultural offer with several museums and galleries all within easy walking distance from each other.

To complete the Merchant city experience, Fraser Suites Glasgow offers some of the best accommodation in Glasgow’s Merchant City. Our 98 Gold Standard luxury residences are just down the street from the Old Fruitmarket and set in a sympathetically-renovated Victorian building comprising studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom serviced apartments.

The SSE Scottish Music Awards

The 19th Scottish Music Awards have been the go-to music event in Scotland since 1996. Sponsored by leading energy company SSE, the event not only recognises and celebrates Scotland’s rich and diverse music scene but it also provides the main fundraising event for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins Scotland.

Some nominees are yet to be announced, but previous Breakthrough Award winner Emili Sande and developing musician Nina Nesbitt are both nominated for awards and will be performing on the night. Up and coming singer-songwriter, Lewis Capaldi will also perform at the event which is tipped to be the hottest ticket in town for December.

The King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut Song Writing award is one of the most envied awards in the Scottish music industry and multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Emili Sande is a worthy nominee with outstanding hits such as ‘Next to Me’, ‘Heaven’, ‘Hurts’ and more from the albums ‘Long Live the Angels’ and ‘Our Version of Events’. One of the other interesting awards is the Coors Light Evolution. Edinburgh-born singer Nina Nesbitt released her first album ‘Peroxide’ to critical acclaim and she will release a follow-upalbum in 2018.

The event is sure to be a star-studded night to remember. Meet in the Old Fruitmarket’s exclusive bar for pre-event drinks and then into the venue itself for an evening of dinner, live performances and an ultra-trendy after-party. As one of the best hotels near the SSE Scottish music awards, you won’t have far to walk back to your apartment and there’s enough happening around the Merchant City to keep you occupied into the ‘wee hours’ if you don’t want the party to stop. Enthral in Glasgow’s charm with its renowned nightlife and fantastic dining spots. The party is sure to continue long into the night after the SSE Scottish Music Awards have ended.
