Hamish Napier

Traditional musician, Berklee, Boston, USA

The Cross Trust helped me realise my dream of studying music at Berklee, one of the world's foremost music colleges, in Boston, USA.

My studies allowed me to develop a wide range of skills as a musician, including composition, arranging, improvisation and ensemble awareness, which would not have been possible without the financial support of The Cross Trust.

I am very grateful to be currently performing with some of the finest musicians in Scotland including Duncan Chisholm, Jarlath Henderson, Ross Ainslie and Adam Sutherland.
