This page has been set up for the family of Tom Edwards, to help pay for costs relating to his death.
It is intended as a way of paying tribute to Tom, but also as a means of alleviating things a little for his family.
On the night of Wednesday 25th January 2017 we suddenly and unexpectedly lost Tom Edwards. He was a versatile guitarist and musical director. At the time, he was playing in Adam Ant’s band while they were on tour in the US. He was 41.
As well as Adam Ant, Tom had been a guitarist for Edwyn Collins, Roddy Frame, Fields of the Nephilim, Rebelles, Andrea Corr, Arno Carstens, Spiderbites, The Dirty Dog Band, and Fosca. He also presented a music show on Soho Radio, 'Rock Hard in the Morning'.
On top of the shock and the grief, the family had to deal with a number of unexpected financial costs related to Tom’s death, including his funeral.
If you ever enjoyed Tom’s performances, or knew him or know the family, please donate whatever you can. And tell others.
Thank you for your support,
Dickon Edwards, Tom's brother.
On behalf of:
Lynne Edwards, Tom’s mother.
Charis Anderson, Tom’s partner.
Holly Dawson, Tom’s daughter.
