Concert to Support Ukraine Emergency Relief

Monday March 14 2022

A concert in a former church in Braemar, Aberdeenshire, this weekend will raise funds supporting humanitarian and relief efforts in Ukraine.

St Margaret’s Braemar hosts folk multi-instrumentalist Hamish Napier (pictured) this Saturday March 19, joined by two of Scotland’s finest folk musicians: Patsy Reid (fiddle) and Innes Watson (guitar and viola).

The trio will perform music from Hamish’s latest album The Woods (album of the year at the Scots Trad Music Awards), inspired by the flora and fauna of the forests of his native Strathspey.

The St Margaret’s Trust, which runs the Deeside arts and heritage venue, has announced that all ticket sales and funds raised on the night will go to the DEC’s Ukraine appeal.

Chair of the trust, Brian Wood, said: “For so many artists, St Margaret’s is fast becoming a ‘must visit’ venue when touring Scotland. We’ve already got an exciting programme in full swing this year and we are delighted to welcome the excellent Hamish Napier, Patsy Reid and Innes Watson this Saturday.

“But above all, we’re a venue at the heart of the Braemar community. We want to show our solidarity with the people and communities across Ukraine who are facing unimaginable misery and hardship.

“Please show your support, come along this Saturday and together we can raise funds to provide food, water, shelter and medical assistance for the people of Ukraine.”

St Margaret’s is a former Episcopal Church building that has been saved and repurposed as a performance, arts and heritage venue. Trustees include the Church of Scotland minister of Braemar and Crathie, the Rev Kenneth Mackenzie, and Colin Hunter, treasurer of Braemar Parish Church.

This Saturday’s concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are available from
