WHO ARE WE?      

FRIENDS OF HIGHLAND MUSIC is a recognised charity No. SCO22098 established for the advancement of education and interest in Highland music and culture.


  • We work with others to promote the teaching and playing of traditional music.  Historically we have taken tutors and instruments into schools to introduce children to our traditional music and in doing so have helped initiate traditional music classes in communities. 
  • We periodically hold Events on an aspect of Scottish music from an expert in the field.  To date we have held events on the fiddle, clarsach, bagpipes, accordion and Gaelic song.
  • In our Tune for You scheme, founder member Eric Allan, will, for a fixed donation to our funds, write a tune – the title and dedication to be decided by yourself.  Eric also runs the Slow Jam, a music group which meets fortnightly in Ness Bank Church Hall, Inverness and plays Scottish music in a relaxed style.
  • We award frequent Grants to help those living in the Highland Council and/or Western Isles areas, to broaden their skills and understanding of traditional music.  We give Financial Assistance to musical groups and projects. 
  • We donated trophies for fiddle and accordion sections in the Inverness Music Festival and regularly sponsor various Competitions in this Event.
