Glasgow singer Jill Brown shows a little tenderness with Soul Food at King Tut's

Singer

She famously played a gig for inmates in Barlinnie jail, and has performed for drug addicts and the hungry.

Now Glasgow singer Jill Brown is behind a new music event taking place at one of the city's most famous venues.

This time the musician will be making a difference to homeless people and refugees when she puts on a special gig next month.

The Soul Food event at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut venue will see those music lovers who are more fortunate paying the entry price for people without any means, or without a home.

The idea is inspired by 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 - April 16 - but this time in the music world.

The idea is 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.

Singer Jill Brown:

”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.”

Jill, who will headline the event, 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, 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.
