Delta 7 news January 2018

8 January 2018

It has been a challenging six months for Delta 7. Sadly in August, they had to cope with the sudden death of Tom Salway, a professional musician who was part of the team working with the band.

News of Tom’s death was shocking and devastating but band members and supporters have found strength and comfort in continuing to make music together, performing at the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne and the Big Gig event in Hastings in October.

A justgiving page has been set up in Tom’s memory, raising money to support Delta 7. Additional funding has also been received from Sussex Community Foundation so the band begin 2018 planning for the future: songwriting, performing and leading workshops in the local community.

A follow-up documentary to the We Rise film that was released last year is currently in production and will be released later this year, directed by Rosie Baldwin, following the development of the band.

SAVE THE DATE: On the evening of 22nd February, the band will perform as part of a full programme of live acts at the Birley Centre in Eastbourne at an event called The Circus of Sound.

This event is being produced in memory of Tom Salway and all proceeds will support the future of Tom’s work with Delta 7. Further details of this event will be announced shortly and it promises to be a very special evening and all support is greatly appreciated.
