Congratulations to RCS Lecturer Jenn Butterworth for winning the prestigious Music Tutor of the Year award at the MG Alba Scots Trad Awards.

The awards, held in Dundee’s Caird Hall and streamed live on BBC ALBA, celebrated the best of Scottish Traditional Music, with a grand ceremony featuring over 80 of the country’s finest trad musicians.

Jenn is a Lecturer in Practical Studies in the Traditional Music department at RCS and works with undergraduate and postgraduate students, ensuring they become the best musicians they can possibly be. We are delighted that Jenn’s commitment and passion for teaching has been recognised at such a national level.

Lots of other winners on the evening were also familiar faces to RCS. Alumni Fiona Hunter, RURA, Ross Ainslie and Treacherous Orchestra all took home awards, with Traditional Music Artistic Director Phil Cunningham and graduate singer Claire Hastings performing on the night to a busy Caird Hall.
