It is an honor to have had Jim Higashi as a member of the Northwest Scottish Fiddle club for over the years. Jim supported the club in many ways, most importantly, bringing his son Colin, who shared his beautiful cello music with us at every meeting. Jim’s passion for photography was evident in his support for our club as well. He was the “on-duty” photographer for multiple workshops, special performances, and loved assembling photo montages of the club in action.
We will miss his smiling face –when he didn’t have the camera poised, he was always ready with a quick joke, or a good story.
The scholarship is available for active members in good standing, and is designated for musicians attending the annual club-sponsored Alasdair Fraser/Natalie Haas.
