With a few tweaks to the line-up the STV Appeal 2012, at the Ironworks, saw a strong line-up of local talent support the charity event.

So how did the act’s bear up? We attempt to answer that question in Twitter form (well it is #ff I guess).

With everybody working so hard to make the event a success and over £1100 made in total, it was a great social event. Well done to everybody involved.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
