Music has the ability to connect people and build community – something that’s at the heart of everything we do. We are a community of tiny change-makers, working together to make young minds feel better.
We know this is the time many of you are preparing for a summer spent in fields with friends, watching bands you love.
With this in mind, we came up with Tiny Gigs. A Tiny Changes fundraiser which will keep us connected through our love of music, allowing us to enjoy emerging, diverse, and well-known talent from the comfort of our own homes.
For one weekend only on 20th and 21st June, Tiny Changes and friends will live stream from their own homes via the Tiny Changes Facebook page. We will be using the event to highlight the important work other CYP charities in Scotland are undertaking right now, many of whom we have supported with our emergency COVID-19 fund.
Joining us is Tim Burgess, Glasgow band Cloth (who recently featured on the Normal People soundtrack), Bill Ryder-Jones, Heir of The Cursed, Frank Turner, The Staves and many more..
Keep an eye on our socials for more information.
Founding Trustee Grant Hutchison had to say –
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 in to 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 will be taking place via Facebook Live @ www.facebook.com/TinyChanges

Tiny Changes was set up following the death of Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison in May 2018, and I work as their charity PR. The charity supports efforts to improve mental health in children and young people in Scotland and takes its name from a lyric from the Frightened Rabbit song “Head Rolls Off” (“While I’m alive, I’ll make tiny changes to Earth”).
