|King Tut's Wah Wah Hut|
Many people are familiar with the concept of the suspended coffee, where you pay in advance for a coffee for someone who couldn’t afford it. Now a similar idea is being launched in Glasgow on Easter Sunday (16th April) but this time in the music world. The legendary King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut venue is offering people the chance to to go to a special gig called ‘Soul Food’: you’ll pay for your own ticket but also buy a ‘soul’ ticket – that’s one for someone who wouldn’t normally get the chance to hear live music.
Soul Food’s creator and Glasgow singer/songwriter, Jill Brown, will headline the event. She said: ”I have a passion for helping those on the outskirts of society and poverty needn’t be only material. We forget that people need inspiration and hope as well as food and shelter. I hope that Soul Food will give people a positive experience and memory on which to draw.”
Chris Beltran, Booking Assistant at DF Concerts and King Tut’s, said:
“We are delighted to be partnering with Jill to make Soul Food happen at King Tut’s. Tut’s has a long history of hosting and supporting charity events, and we’re proud to continue that tradition with an event that will greatly benefit three local charities.”
Soul tickets will be distributed amongst people who receive support from Glasgow City Mission, which works with those who are homeless, St Rollox Community Outreach Project in the city’s Sighthill area, which helps asylum seekers and refugees, and Glasgow Women’s Aid.
