The Liam Colgan Music Fund is an independent charity set up to support young musicians and others in the Highlands & Islands of Scotland keen to pursue ambitions in music, whether simply to create music and perform in their local community or to follow dreams of a professional career as a musician, or working in other music-related areas of the creative music industry.

"The Liam Colgan Music Fund is such a welcome, important initiative – born out of great sadness – but one that opens a door on to the healing power of music"

The Liam Colgan Music Fund (LCMF) announces it has received support from the BRIT Trust for its work in the Highlands

The BRIT Trust supports a number of major UK charities involved in music but also selects a few smaller charities to support with a donation each year.


The LCMF, one of just six recipients from across the UK selected by the BRIT Trust for a donation, has emerged as oneof the most dynamic small charities in the creative industries sector in the North of Scotland.
