Who We are. Our mission

Fraser Shaw

The Fraser Shaw Trust was set up in memory of a much loved guy and wonderful musician who passed away in May 2015 after battling with MS and eventually PML. The trust will raise funds for MS charities through a range of projects celebrating Fraser and his music including festivals, concerts, whisky tastings, and the release of Mac Ìle: The Music of Fraser Shaw - a tunebook and album featuring his compositions, played by some of Scotland's finest musicians.

Originally from Glasgow, Fraser studied in Sabhail Mór Ostaig, Skye before settling down on the Isle of Islay, where he worked in the Port Charlotte Hotel. He worked and lived in Glasgow for a time until returning to Islay when his MS symptoms increased.

All profits raised by The Fraser Shaw Trust will go towards MS Charities. Proceeds of the tunebook go directly towards the MS Care Centre in Lochilphead. Proceeds of the album and further donations will be used for the advancement of education, arts and culture and for the relief of those living with multiple sclerosis in Scotland, particularly on the Isle of Islay. See our News/Blog page for updates.

Help Us Reach our Goal

The foremost aim of the Fraser Shaw Trust is to raise money for the relief of multiple sclerosis, particularly in Argyll, Scotland, through a series of projects and events celebrating the late Fraser Shaw and his music. Proceeds are also used for the advancement of education, arts and culture in Scotland, particularly on the Isle of Islay.
