“This year has been a challenging time for everyone but music is such a powerful force and the music therapy work that Nordoff Robbins does is so important.

“I’m looking forward to being part of the online event on November 28 to bring everyone together and raise money for such a cherished charity.”

Other acts include Wet Wet Wet, George Bowie, Graeme Park’s Hacienda Classical Orchestra, Gun, HYYTS, and Stephanie Cheape.

Luke La Volpe, Amy Macdonald and kitti were announced previously.

Amy Macdonald commented: “In such a difficult year for everyone, to be nominated for the Women In Music Award 13 years later feels like another very special landmark.”

While many of the artists will be airing brand new performances, the awards will also showcase exclusive footage from Biffy Clyro’s 2020 Barrowlands Ballroom show and unseen clips from Lewis Capaldi’s 2020 European tour.

The awards – now in their 22nd year – will be hosted live by Edith Bowman from SWG3 in Glasgow from 7pm on Saturday November 28 via nordoff-robbins.org.uk
