Her vocal style has won her many awards, such as Scots Singer of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards in 2018, the Scots Language Awards with the title of Speaker of the Year in 2021, and also in 2021, she became the first singer to win the coveted title of Musician of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards, among others.
