Oxjam Shetland’s Buskathon is back for another year! The third annual Buskathon will take place on Saturday 30th August, at various points along ‘Da Street’.

For one day only, the team have recruited some buskers to brighten up the street with live music. We have both well-known musicians who fill up venues every weekend, to those who usually only perform in the comfort of their own home, occupying several 'busking stations', taking it in turns to show off Shetland's musical talent, and raising money for Oxfam while doing so.


So take a wander along the street on Sat 30th, and show these amazing people some support! It’s all about raising money for a great cause, while promoting our local music scene and all it has to offer.


If you fancy being more than just a passing spectator, there’s still plenty of time to volunteer for a little bit of busking yourself. Get in touch! Email oxjamshetland2014@gmail.com, or phone Ashlea Tulloch, Takeover Manager, on 07799281996. We’ve had everything from bagpipes to harps in the past – there’s a spot for everyone!


If you’d like to find out more about Oxjam Shetland and our big annual Takeover on Sat 25th Oct, please search for us on facebook and check out our page. To find out more about volunteering opportunities with us, please get in touch via the contact information above. We’d love to hear from you.


Local music, global impact.
