Ruairidh Macleod, a sixth year student at St Mary’s Music School in Edinburgh, has won the prestigious 2015 John Byrne Award for his musical improvisation, De Profundis.

Now in its sixth year, The John Byrne Award challenges 16-19 year olds in Edinburgh to confront, develop and express their values in response to a given stimulus by producing a creative piece of work in any medium – a painting, a dance or even an HTML code. Work is carried out independently of teachers or parents: https://messagematters.co.uk/jimmy-reid-speech-inspires-john-byrne-award-winner/
