Hudson Taylor are one of several Irish bands on the line-up for a charity gig at Whelan's later this month.

The folk-pop brothers will play 'Music Man in Hat', a gig that is part of a wider campaign to raise awareness of homelessness in Ireland, and to generate financial support for homeless charities.

It's taking place on June 18th and will coincide with a music memorabilia auction that will conclude with a small floor auction at Whelan's on the 18th, but will also run online before then.

There will be signed items by the likes of Hozier, Glen Hansard, Snow Patrol, Little Green Cars and even a signed Green Day album on offer.

Playing the gig on the night (several of them pictured above) are:

Hudson Taylor
Gavin Glass & The New Shakers
Cry Monster Cry
Carol Keogh and the City Fathers
Dylan Tighe
Barry Jay Hughes

Tickets for the gig are €16.50 and on sale via WaV now.

In the meantime, if you'd like to donate a signed piece of memorabilia - whether you're in a band or simply a fan in possession of something special - you can donate to the auction by this Friday, June 5th by getting in touch with [email protected]
