Concert for MND Scotland featuring The Butler Family

4 February 2024, Edinburgh Queen’s Hall

Brought together to produce this one-off concert when their mother, Anne Butler, was recently diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease, this is an opportunity to hear the Butler Family perform much-loved songs and tunes from their own repertoire as well as featuring artists such as Joni Mitchell and Gillian Welch.

The Butler Family band is made up of six family members; all professional touring musicians with over 40 albums between them. The evening’s line up includes renowned singer-songwriter Rory Butler, former Lies Damned Lies lead singer and headliner of the Queen’s Hall for his recorded solo album (2005) Steve Butler, and musician songwriter Suzanne Butler. 

Join The Butler Family for one night only at The Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh for a special concert in aid of the charity MND Scotland.

MND Scotland is a charity on the front line in the fight against Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in Scotland. Their vision is a world without MND and, until that day comes, they are here to make time count for everyone affected by MND in Scotland. They fund ground-breaking research and world-class clinical trials, whilst campaigning to secure lasting change.
