Jimmy Shand

Crowdfunding for the Sir Jimmy Shand Collection.

Jimmy Shand was world renowned as player, composer, band leader and innovator. Less well known is that he was also a discerning collector of old music books.

Friends of Wighton bought The Jimmy Shand Collection at auction and they are now raising money to have the volumes conserved so they can be used by musicians, scholars and the community. 

To bring the music off the page and into life and to celebrate the works being made available they’ll run, in Dundee, Angus and Fife, a series of concerts, ceilidhs and workshops under the title The Sir Jimmy Shand Connection.

You can watch a video about the project and donate on their crowdfunding page.

Friends of Wighton would like to thank Jimmy Shand Jr and all the Shand family for their support of this project.
