Who We are. Our mission
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, recordings, whisky tastings, the release of his tunebook, and more.
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.
Plans are set to release an album of Fraser's music this year, along with a book of his compositions. See our News/Blog page for updates. All profits raised by The Fraser Shaw Trust will go towards MS Charities. See our News/Blog page for updates. All profits raised by The Fraser Shaw Trust will go towards MS Charities.
