About Tunes for The Trust

“A Tune for the Trust” has been composed by music student and award winning pipeband drummer Fergus Bryce. He did so with 14-year-old bagpiper Eilidh from the Isle of Barra, who was a victim of the 2017 Manchester Arena attack, in mind. Fergus’s starting point for the 4/4 march was to create a piece that represented hope for the future, the positivity of youth and the love of traditional music – many attributes that represented Eilidh’s life. The arrangement has captured all of these elements and will leave the listener with a true sense of optimism.

A special event, at which the piece will be premiered live, will be held at Glasgow’s National Piping Centre. The event will also feature a range of young Scottish musicians who are all lending their support to the cause of youth music education. Tickets for this one-off event are available on Eventbrite with all proceeds going to Eilidh’s Trust.

Student Fergus said: “I am really happy with how “A Tune for the Trust” has turned out and how it sounds. The music is specifically written to be optimistic and looking to the future – something that ties in perfectly with the ethos of Eilidh’s Trust. I hope the listeners will enjoy the tune as much as we have we in composing and performing it and that it adds to Eilidh’s legacy in supporting music education for other young musicians

Eilidh’s Trust was established in 2018 and supports music education for young people, reflecting Eilidh’s own musical ability and enjoyment as a piper with the Sgoil Lionacleit Pipe Band. The trust will also manage and maintain a permanent memorial to Eilidh and a garden of remembrance and reflection on Barra.
