A KINCARDINE singer will be performing in her hometown for the first time in years this week with all proceeds going to charity.

Katrina Nimmo lived in Fife until she was 18 before moving to Glasgow, Cardiff, London and then Portsmouth.

She moved back to Fife in 2020 and has been itching to produced entertainment for the local community for the past 20 months.

Now, she'll be taking to the stage on Friday, November 26, at Kincardine and Tulliallan Parish Church with a songbook which includes classical Scots, Beethoven and even The Proclaimers.

Katrina said: "As soon as I saw live music returning I let my minister, Rev Alec Shuttleworth, know that I'd like to put my skills to use and he has been very supportive."

Not only will the concert be a welcome return to the stage for Katrina, she's hoping to make it as accessible to as many people as possible by having no set ticket prices.

Katrina continued: "I believe that music should be for everyone, and that is the reason I have decided to take donations instead of a set ticket price.

"It is extremely important to me that people hear music – Scottish music in particular – regardless of their financial situation."

None of the musicians performing will take a fee for the show with all proceeds being split between Music in Hospitals Scotland and Friends of Tulliallan and Kincardine Church.

Katrina added: "Having had a career in music, especially classical music, for the past 10-15 years I'm just totally against the exclusivity of it.

"You see opera tickets going for £200 and you think: 'well, no thanks'.

"I want to sing for whoever wants to hear it.

"If someone wants to come and listen then I don't want money to be an obstacle."

Katrina added she's looking forward to bringing people back together for an event after the past 18 months in order to raise money for some very worthy causes.

She continued: "It's been a bit of a whirlwind to be honest. I'm lucky that I have a full time job, as do the other musicians, so we were able to put something in the diary a little bit ahead and really look forward to it.

"It's going to be something a little bit different and just bringing folks together and to help [both organisations] finally recoup the losses they faced over the last two years.

"Doing that kind of thing really means a lot so I'm very excited."

After being away for so long, Katrina is eagerly awaiting her homecoming show.

"I've been really wanting to engage in the local community," she continued.

"To be able to raise a bit of money to donate to a local church and the Music in Hospitals who supported me as an artist is absolutely brilliant."

Tickets for the concert will be available on the door this Friday with the show set to start at 7.15pm.
