From Nashville to Newington

Upmo music fundraiser

Wild Ponies travelled from Tennessee to host a music fundraiser for Upmo.

Showcasing their unique Americana sound, the group played to a sell-out crowd at St Peter’s Church Hall in Edinburgh.

Doug and Telisha Williams were joined by Dropkick, Blueflint and Under the Dogwood Tree for the November 10 gig – just a few days after featuring on BBC Radio 2’s famous Bob Harris Country show.

Organised to raise funds for Upmo and inspire our students, the show was the first of many planned – with Wild Ponies promising to return in the future.

Author Ian Rankin was among the audience.

We are all here because we love Upmo
