Irvine rockers will be back together raising money for an Ayrshire-based mental health charity after the tragic suicide of Grunge legend Chris Cornell.

Musicians will hold their fourth annual charity tribute to Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell this Saturday [May 7] in Irvine R&a Sport Bar running from 7.30pm to midnight – after the tribute night had to be cancelled in 2020 due to coronavirus.

Performing first will be Colin Hunter, Bullets and Arrows, and last on the bill the Cornell Collective – a group of friends playing the musician’s greatest songs and other grunge classics.

The event, costing £10 a ticket, will raise funds for mental health charity Beautiful Inside and Out – set up by Pauline Moriarty after the suicide of 13-year-old daughter Jenna.

Scott Boyd, of the Cornell Collective and Spleen said: “Colin Hunter is going to open with the acoustic set and then we’ve got Bullets and Arrows before the Cornell Collective.

“We’re sticking with Pauline’s charity this year as she does great work – Paul [Boyd] has come into contact with the kids she teaches and doing sessions and it has made a massive difference. She does great work.

“We’ve got some really cool raffle prizes coming up on the night and we’re going to do a wee auction as Julian Mclaughlan has donated a painting called The Unhappy clown.

“We want to raise as much money for Pauline as we can and enjoy a decent night ourselves.”
