A gig and auction worthy of your support! On June 18th Hudson Taylor, Gavin Glass and more will take to the stage at Whelan’s, and all in aid of a good cause, to fight homelessness in Ireland. There will also be an auction that will include autographed items from many of Ireland’s music royalty. Check out the full details below.
‘MAN IN HAT’ – MONSTER IRISH MUSIC AUCTION GIG – WHELAN’S – June 18th, 8pm
With special performances by:
Gavin Glass & The New Shakers
Cry Monster Cry
Carol Keogh and the City Fathers
Barry Jay Hughes
Music Man in Hat is an initiative set up in April by Peter Meade to raise awareness to the homeless situation in Ireland. The aim of the campaign is to generate funding for charities.
Music Man In Hat has already received support from some of Ireland’s biggest acts
such as Hozier, Glen Hansard and Snow Patrol to name but a few.
A uniquely autographed Irish collection of music and memorabilia will be sold both largely online and at a smaller on the floor auction in Whelan’s on the night of 18th June 2015.
The auctions will close at the celebratory gig and the total raised from both auctions will be announced by Mr Ian Whyte of Whyte’s Auctioneers. Deadline for receipt of goods for online auction is 5th June 2015!!
We are appealing to all Irish musicians and members of the public who have autographed material to donate and add to this unique collection.
The problem of homelessness in Ireland is growing and urgent action is needed. All proceeds from the gig and auction will go directly toward helping those who have found themselves in homeless situations.
Help us along with Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Inner City Helping Homeless, RTÉ 2fm, Tower Records and Whelan’s to spread the word.
