The charity event on 20 and 21 June will feature performances by Tim Burgess, Cloth, Heir of the Cursed and Frank Turner
Tiny Changes has announced Tiny Gigs, a live stream fundraiser event and celebration of the Tiny Changes community that will take place for one weekend only on Sat 20 and Sun 21 June.
The Tiny Changes charity was founded following the death of Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison in 2018 and supports efforts to improve mental health in children and young people in Scotland. Tiny Gigs aims to help keep people connected through their love of music, allowing them to enjoy a variety of live performances by talented artists from the comfort of their own homes, while also raising funds and awareness for mental health efforts.
Tiny Changes and friends will live stream from their own homes via the Tiny Changes Facebook page on both 20 and 21 June. The event will highlight the meaningful work that other CYP (Children and Young People) charities in Scotland are currently doing, many of which have been supported by the Tiny Changes emergency COVID-19 relief fund that was launched last month.
Artists confirmed to participate in the Tiny Gigs live stream include the Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess, Glasgow band Cloth (recently featured on the Normal People soundtrack), Bill Ryder-Jones, Heir of The Cursed, Frank Turner and The Staves.
Tiny Changes founding trustee Grant Hutchison said: 'At a time when so many of us might be feeling disconnected and isolated from the world let's all get together in a virtual field and enjoy some togetherness with a bunch of amazing musicians. Instead of feeling like we're missing out on seeing friends, going to gigs and singing along together let's make the most of being able to sit and watch a music festival from our own couch in our pants! What started as a wee idea after seeing a bunch of artists perform for folk online has been turned into a reality by a few wonderful folk at Tiny Changes. Join in, sing along and then at the end of the night you don't need to fumble around in the dark looking for your tent. You can go to your own bed!! Result!'
Tiny Gigs viewers are encouraged to donate what they can to support mental health initiatives on the Tiny Changes fundraising page.
