SUPPORTING THE GOALS & AMBITIONS
OF YOUNG PEOPLE
IN MUSIC

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 make and perform music in their local community or to follow dreams of a career in music on the artistic, creative, technical or business side of the 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" 

Rory MacDonald, Runrig

'Setting the Stage II' 
LIve Event Production Training Workshop

Saturday, March 16th 2024
Merkinch Community Centre, Inverness

Back by demand, the Fund's 'Setting the Stage Ii' training workshop on March 16th saw 20 young people take part in this innovative event, getting hands-on experience running sound, lights, backline and event management under the guidance and supervision of industry professionals, with live bands providing sound checks. Whilst last year's event broke new ground, the latest workshop was even better.

Huge thanks and Shout Out to the crew of instructors and staff for their time and effort:

Calum Martin (Production Manager)  |  Iain McLaughlin (Event Manager)  | 

Graeme Watt (Sound -FoH)  |  Steve Bull (Sound - Monitors)  |  Alex Renniie (Lights)  | 

Nathan Fraser (Backline/Stage Crew)  |  Robbie Dunsmore (Breakout Sessions) 

Many thanks to the three great bands who came and provided soundchecks and created a real-world experience for our trainee production crews.

Moteh Parrott & Friends  |  Daniel Gunn Band  |  Iain McLaughlin & The Outsiders

Many thanks to our sponsors:
