Our congratulations to Kathryn Joseph, winner of the 2015 SAY award for her album, Bones You Have Thrown Me And Blood I’ve Spilled.
Kathryn seemed quite overwhelmed by her win and was particularly delighted to receive her quilt: shortlisted nominees were presented with a beautifully designed quilt by Vanessa Hindshaw, a recent graduate of Glasgow School of Art.
A typically lively evening, ably presented by Janice Forsyth and Vic Galloway, saw storming performances from Young Fathers, Golden Teacher, Tuff Love and Loki and the Kartel.
Paolo Nutini acknowledged his nomination and seemed equally happy with his quilt.
He was later spotted in The Box where he joined The Kicks on stage to tackle Prince’s Purple Rain.
Belle and Sebastian sent a message of support from Colorado.
We’re sure they’ll also enjoy their quilt – assuming that they can work out an equitable quilt-sharing rota.
Ice cream and popcorn were available – a nice idea to tie in with the venue. The ABC is after all a converted cinema which is now in its tenth year as one of Glasgow’s best music venues.
Congratulations to all the nominees in what’s been a very strong and diverse year.
