Young Traditional Musician 2015 winner: 'It's amazing'

The winner of the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician 2015 has told how she almost missed out after nearly losing her voice in the week before the competition.

Singer Claire Hastings, from Dumfries, told BBC Good Morning Scotland that the win will boost her career: "It's such a massive platform, it's amazing.

"Something that I've wanted for a long time now."

The 25-year-old performed as part of the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow on Sunday evening.
