“Edinburgh Musicians Rally Round for Held In Our Hearts”

Posted: 10th March 2022

The foundations of Edinburgh are set to shake as the Noise Committee, an Edinburgh based community drum crew, take to the stage to round off an evening of entertainment and fundraising activities for Held in Our Hearts, the baby loss charity. The concert will see a performance of Caro Bridges of Machine Orchid, The Last Battle, and the River, and a debut performance from the Gnarly Tree, featuring ‘Sir’ Tom Watton, who has benefited from the services of Held in Our Hearts.

“I’m excited and nervous about the event, I will be performing with the Gnarly Tree, a new band and will be playing some exciting new material alongside some of my more widely known songs. The concert marks three years since me and my partner lost our baby son, Issie, during pregnancy. Held in our Hearts continue to provide us with much needed support; it feels great to be raising funds for them.”

Tracy Watt, Fundraising Manager for Held in Our Hearts said: “We want to thank Tom and Laura for their incredible support of the work that we do in memory of precious Issie. We have had a challenging two years with no fundraising events taking place,
and an increased demand on our services due to the pandemic. We’d like to say a huge thank you to the band for giving up their time and energy to put together this fantastic event and to those who are coming along and support the concert on the night too.

7pm – 10pm, 19th March, the Caves, Tickets available at
