Alzheimer Scotland

We support people with dementia in Scotland to make sure nobody faces dementia alone

Charity Registration No. SC022315


The Walnuts - we are small boys disguised as middle ages men
who have been given a camper van and we’re going to travel to Scotland, play music, eat pies and raise donations for Alzheimer Scotland (and the Eric Liddell Centre).

The Walnuts are
Davie McGirr: me - founder of and owner of a guitar
Matt Allwright: - lap steel aficionado, journalist and TV presenter of Watchdog, One Show, Rogue Traders and other things
Donald Stewart: - Celtic Fiddle legend and shoe model
Fergus Muirhead writer, broadcaster and piper.

We play Celtic music, Folk and Americana.

We play for charity. When you get to a certain age you become more aware of the distressing effect dementia has on families and friends – the illness not only brings a terrible lingering decline, it has a relentless and devastating impact on carers too. We collect to support dementia research.

This year we collecting donations for the Eric Liddell Centre in Edinburgh and for Alzheimer Scotland everywhere.
