Liam Colgan went missing in Hamburg in February 2018 and his disappearance received national attention. For over two months Liam's family and friends, supported by many local Hamburg residents, searched for clues to his disappearance until sadly Liam’s body was recovered from the river Elbe in April 2018.
Now his family and friends have established the Liam Colgan Music Fund, which has a strong working partnership with the University of the Highlands and Islands, to provide access, progress and legacy for people, who are looking for opportunities in the music industry on both the performance and production levels.
To build a charity which integrates opportunities and supports communities through music, in the Highlands and Islands,
We will facilitate access to learning, opportunities for progress, and legacy of achievement through music.
Access – creating opportunities (from venues for practise to work experience in the industry); Progress – people learning and developing; Legacy – having something longer lasting from the experience like contacts or help with a qualification.
YOUR SUPPORT CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

A message from Liam's family
"On behalf of myself, Liam’s mother Patricia, and brother Eamonn, I would like to welcome you to the website of the Liam Colgan Music fund. When I originally had the idea of setting up a fund to assist young musicians, in Liam’s memory, I anticipated funds being provided by myself, Patricia and occasionally by close family. However, we have all been overwhelmed by the desire of so many others to get involved and to contribute. It truly is humbling. We thank you all for your interest and contribution."
