The View, King Creosote and Mott the Hoople will perform at this month’s Tartan Clef Awards, while Lloyd Cole and the Commotions will reunite for one night only.

The November 27 ceremony at the SECC in Glasgow will be part of a programme of events to bring the curtain down on Scotland’s Homecoming year and organisers are promising a fantastic evening of entertainment as well as a great chance to raise money for Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy.

2009’s eclectic line up will see Mott the Hoople perform as part of their 40th anniversary tour as Ian Hunter, originally from Hamilton, makes the trip home, while Glasgow’s Lloyd Cole & the Commotions will reunite on stage especially for the show.

Previous Tartan Clef Award winners include the likes of Paolo Nutini, Biffy Clyro, Lulu, Franz Ferdinand, Craig Armstrong and Edwyn Collins and this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever before as it moves to the arena venue.

“We’re excited to have such a fantastic line-up for this year’s Homecoming Scotland Tartan Clef Awards,” says Fundraising Committee chairman Donald Macleod. “Last year’s awards raised £93,000 for Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy in Scotland and this year we hope to raise even more.”

The Homecoming Scotland Tartan Clef Awards is the main fundraising event for Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy in Scotland which works to support children and adults who have been affected by illness, disability and trauma.
