Song Wave will create a beautiful tribute to Scott Hutchison in recognition of his experiences with mental health issues and the legacy he left of hope and kindness – and of the importance of connecting with those around you.
On Friday 17 May, we will create a Song Wave throughout the Scottish Borders (and beyond!) that connects our local communities, young and old, by singing a new song that we work together to produce and perform.
The new song has been written as a response to one of Scott’s Frightened Rabbit songs The Loneliness and the Scream. Could you help us to produce a new song – one that reaches out a hand, that glues the community together?
The new song has been curated and arranged by Clare Watson, voice coach and singing tutor, and is titled Stay. We hope that it will be performed by individuals, groups, choirs and schools all over the Borders with organised and pop-up performances posted on social media using #SongWave ,and also included on the next Sound Cycle album. Any donations raised at performances will be given to the newly established Scott Hutchison Fund, a new mental health charity in memory of Scott.
