The 2021 Performance Award is available to self-employed, professional, Scottish traditional musicians who have limited savings, few if any gigs, and require a little financial assistance. Applicants may only apply once for this award; however, successful applicants will receive an award of £300 in 2021. We are a small charity with limited funds so we have a ceiling on how many we can assist.

To be eligible to apply you must be over 18 years of age and a self-employed, full-time professional musician who plays Scottish traditional music either in a solo capacity or in a group or band and you must be financially dependent on your musicianship. Students need not apply for this award. In line with continuing professional development, the GDMT will accept one application from those who applied and received a 2020 Performance Award last year.
