Usually in this week following the Scots Trad Awards I am putting up pictures of our artists clutching awards. This year it gives me great delight to post a picture of the woman who made, and continues to make, Active what it is today. Lisa Whytock has been recognised for her 30 year plus contribution to the Scottish music industry with the Hamish Henderson Services to Traditional Music Award. This year’s ceremony was held online of course so the actual award is still in the post but at least Lisa had a bunch of flowers to pose with.
Lisa has also been inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame and they did a great wee history of Lisa and the agency which you can find here https://projects.handsupfortrad.scot/hall-of-fame/hamish-henderson-services-to-traditional-music-2020-lisa-whytock/?fbclid=IwAR0-W7qzshQdIgy7GMm-h_h05yHcDqPolhYac-D_NbFQk1dBaVnnB9kP-GU.
