About ShawFest

Shawfest is a yearly festival that helps to raise money for The Fraser Shaw Trust.

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.

We're pleased to announce that #Shawfest2018 will take place over the weekend of 8/9 September in Partick and we can promise lots of superb music and fun for all the family!
