The songs of Frightened Rabbit will feature at this year’s Sleep in the Park event, which takes place in four Scottish cities, including Glasgow on December 8th.
The performance will feature a series of guest singers including James Graham from The Twilight Sad in a set billed ‘Songs of Frightened Rabbit’.
The band including Grant Hutchison and Billy Kennedy recently appeared for the first time since the death of singer Scott Hutchison, when they were joined by The Charlatans at Belladrum Festival.
Grant Hutchison said: “It’s an honour to play for such a special event again and we felt it would be the perfect time for us to play together again and share this special night with some of our favourite artists.
“We had agreed to play Sleep In The Park before Scott passed and we felt that since it was something for such a great cause that we should stick to our decision and honour Scott in the best way we know – to play the songs he wrote and continue spreading his message of kindness whilst supporting Social Bite and the amazing work they do.”
Sleep in the Park – now an annual event organised by the Social Bite charity – will take place in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen with 12,000 people expected to sleep out, with a target of raising £4M as well as being a political statement intended to end homelessness in Scotland.
Stina Tweeddale of Honeyblood will also perform a solo set in Glasgow with more guests to be announced, while the Edinburgh event will be headlined by Lulu. The Dundee event will be headlined by Kyle Falconer out of The View, while Eddi Reader tops the bill in Aberdeen.
Amy Macdonald and KT Tunstall will be flying by helicopter between the four venues, seeing them performing in all 4 cities in one night while Trainspotting Author Irvine Welsh will be performing a bedtime story.
Olympian Sir Chris Hoy will speak and Siobhan Wilson, Withered Hand, Kris Drever, plus Adam Holmes And The Embers are also on the bill, with the events hosted by Fred MacAulay.
