Musicians who have performed in an under-threat city venue have joined forces to produce a fundraising album in a bid to save it from closure.

Popular arts venue the Forest Cafe faces an uncertain future after its owner, Edinburgh University Settlement (EUS), went bankrupt and the building was placed on the market.

Employees, volunteers and customers have launched a campaign to buy the building, which is being sold for around £1 million.
