John Muir Meets Tom Weir Celebratory Concert

19:30 - 21:00

John Muir Meets Tom Weir Celebratory Concert, Victoria Halls, Helensburgh, Thursday 24 April 2014, 7.30pm

Renowned folk singer and conservation champion, Jimmie McGregor will be at the Victoria Halls, Helensburgh, to pay homage to the father of the Global National Parks movement, John Muir from 7.30pm.

The concert is just one of a number of events taking place in the area to celebrate and mark this new coast to coast walking route which links Dunbar, Muir's birth place, with Helensburgh, which looks across the Firth of Clyde to Greenock, where, as an 11 year old, Muir left Scotland for North America.

The concert is being organised by the local conservation charity, The Friends of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs. 

Much-loved and remembered Scottish walker Tom Weir, who died a few years ago, was also a notable supporter of conservation and National Parks; and all proceeds from this event will go towards a campaign to erect a statue in Tom’s memory.
