A tribute event to Frightened Rabbit’s Scott Hutchison took place this weekend in Scotland, featuring the band’s Grant Hutchison, Billy Kennedy and Andy Monaghan as well as a host of special guests.
Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil was one of the artists performing, joining the band to perform the 2008 song ‘The Modern Leper’ before performing a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Dancing in the Dark’.
They were also joined by series of special guests on vocals throughout the night, including The Twilight Sad‘s James Graham. Proceeds from the gig will go to Social Bite, a social enterprise set up to help end homelessness in Scotland, as well as The Scott Hutchison Foundation.
The band have since shared a statement about the night on Instagram, writing: “We felt Scott’s presence in every word that was sung with us last night by the incredible folks who joined us onstage and in the whole bandstand”. Read the whole statement and watch some clips of the performances below.
