Festival to pay tribute to Frightened Rabbit frontman
Belladrum Festival said Scott Hutchison's band had a 'special place in their extended family'.
A Highland music festival is paying tribute to Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison following his death in May.
The band had been booked to headline the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival in August, performing their sophomore album The Midnight Organ Fight.
Frightened Rabbit had previously appeared at Belladrum in 2008, 2012 and 2014, and festival organisers said the band had a "special place in our extended festival family".
Rather than looking for a replacement act, the festival will now play The Midnight Organ Fight in full alongside a video tribute to Scott in the headline slot.
There will be a collection for the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) while the tribute is ongoing.
Promoter Joe Gibbs said: "Following suggestions from fans and our own deliberations we felt that a tribute to Scott and the band would be more appropriate than any other course of action.
"Playing the album live will be a chance for everyone to come together to pay tribute to and remember both Scott and the band's outstanding contribution to Scottish music."
Jo Anderson from SAMH added: "All of us at SAMH were really sad to hear of Scott's death. The outpouring of support we have received from the public in memory of Scott has been hugely inspiring, many of whom were keen to 'make tiny changes to earth'.
"Scott's lyrics have clearly resonated with many, and we hope Frightened Rabbit fans attending Belladrum will be encouraged to open up and talk, something Scott did through his music."
