Amy Macdonald is the latest star confirmed to perform at the Specsavers Scottish Music Awards.

The Scottish singer will perform at the awards ceremony alongside The Fratellis, Nina Nesbitt, Nathan Evans and Wet Wet Wet, which will be held at the Barrowland Ballroom for the first time in its 23-year history. 

The event, held on November 13, will raise funds for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins and will be livestreamed for music fans to enjoy from their own homes. 

Amy, who has been nominated for the Specsavers Outstanding Achievement Award, said: “It’s a huge honour to be nominated for the outstanding achievement award, and I’m very grateful to Nordoff Robbins and the organisers for all their support over the years. 

“The Best Newcomer award was the first thing I ever won for my music and having the backing of people at home in Scotland has been a huge part of me being able to keep doing this for a living. 

“I’m excited to perform at the show, especially as it’s at the Barrowlands, the best venue in the world. 

“As always, the money raised on the night allows the incredible Nordoff Robbins therapists to continue their work helping people to communicate through music and I’m delighted to be able to do my bit for them once again.”

Susanne Akil, Specsavers’ Scottish chair, added: “We are delighted to sponsor the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award. 

“The awards will be extra special for us as not only will we have the opportunity to crown this year’s winner, but we will get to see last year’s winner of the award, Wet Wet Wet, perform in person following last year’s virtual awards ceremony.”
