Idlewild will headline a show at King Tut’s in Glasgow next week, launching music charity Help Musicians UK’s new Scottish division. The acoustic show will see the band supported by Be Charlotte, Indigo Velvet and Skjør, all of whom have received help from the charity in the past.

“We are absolutely THRILLED to support the launch of Help Musicians Scotland at one of our favourite venues, King Tut’s”, says Idlewild’s Rod Jones. “We’ve played some really special gigs at the venue, the first 21 years ago and a five night stint in 2008, so it’s truly an honour to return for such a great cause. Help Musicians Scotland do amazing work to support musicians at all stages in their career. We’re planning a special acoustic set for the evening and fans should expect a fitting setlist to mark a landmark moment for the Scottish music industry”.

Director of HMScotland Claire Gevaux adds: “After a year of listening and reflecting on the needs of the Scottish music scene, I’m excited to see HMScotland launch in a few weeks. I look forward to sharing more of our ambitions at the launch on 1 Feb 2018 when we will set down our permanent roots across the whole of Scotland”.

Taking place, as noted there, on 1 Feb, tickets for the launch show will go on sale on Wednesday with all proceeds going to the charity.
