Wet Wet Wet star Graeme Clark to perform at exclusive concert to raise funds for local charity
Wet Wet Wet star Graeme Clark is to perform at an exclusive concert in Ayrshire to raise funds for local charity Hansel.
The singer, who penned Wets classic hits such as Goodnight Girl, Angel Eyes and Wishing I Was Lucky, will be appearing at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway on 24th of August.
Tickets costing £20 are on sale from the Fundraising Department on 01563 830340 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you can pop into the Hansel gift shop, Hi Street at 40 Main Street, Prestwick to buy them in person.
Agnes Paton, Hansel Fundraising and Communications Manager, said:
“We are thrilled that Graeme has agreed to appear at the concert. He is one of Scotland’s most talented musicians and songwriters and will be performing songs from his latest album, Radio Silence, along with some Wet Wet Wet classics.
“Graeme’s involvement with the charity started when he agreed to film a thank you to the amazing people who took part in The Kiltwalk for Hansel and we are so grateful for his support.”
Clark will be accompanied by renowned duo Fiona Cuthill and Stevie Lawrence to bring a stunning evening of acoustic sound which is not to be missed.
Fiona and Stevie have been fortunate enough to play in many festivals and gigs all over Europe during their time as a duo and are also members of Scottish based band Rallion. Also on the bill is a solo performance from blues-rock guitarist Kyle Hood, an accomplished musician who also plays with popular band Rigid Soul which has a monthly residency at Howlin Wolf in Glasgow and has provided support slots for Kyle Falconer of The View and Zal Cleminson of The Sensational Alex Harvey Band.
The money raised from the concert will go towards the Wilson House Refurbishment Appeal which aims to raise £60,300 to improve facilities at the small group home at Hansel’s headquarters in Symington.
The property, which accommodates 15 residents, needs modernised with new furniture and paintwork and improvements made to the lay-out of the bath and shower rooms.
Agnes said: “It has been more than 20 years since the property has been refurbished and it desperately needs updated. We hope that local people will get behind the campaign and help us to transform Wilson House.”
Hansel is one of Ayrshire’s leading care organisations supporting people and their families living with a learning disability and those with autism. Further information is available from www.hansel.org.uk
