Band to play first gig since tragedy

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

Scot­tish band Fright­ened Rab­bit will play their first gig this week­end since the death of singer Scott Hutchi­son.

The front­man’s body was found on the banks of the Firth of Forth af­ter he took his own life aged 36 in May.

His fam­ily said there had been con­cerns about his mental health, and they were “dev­as­tated” by his death.

Fright­ened Rab­bit will be joined by spe­cial guests in a trib­ute to Scott at Glas­gow’s Kelv­in­grove Band­stand tonight.

The Sleep In The Park concert in Kelv­in­grove Park will also raise money for a char­ity Mr Hutchi­son’s fam­ily are set­ting up in his mem­ory.

The singer’s brother Grant, who plays drums in the band, said: “It seemed like the right thing to do, and like a nat­u­ral thing to do, to make a pos­i­tive thing out of some­thing that per­son­ally was a very tragic event and to be able to help two char­i­ties and two causes.”
