A night for Bob as FSC hosts charity concert


A CHARITY evening of Americana, folk, pop and live dance will take place at Dunfermlin­e’s Fire Station Creative (FSC) in memory of one of its founding directors.

Bob Moir died at the age of 66 in 2016 after more than a year- long battle with prostate cancer.

Before he passed away he helped his son, gallery curator Ian Moir, renovate the old city fire station by decorating all 21 studios for creatives to take up residency.

Ian said: “My dad was a huge fan of Country music which he fully explored when he lived in America.

“Before he passed away, he helped us renovate the old fire station by volunteeri­ng to decorate all 21 studios, getting them ready for the artists and creatives to move in.

“It took him four months to complete, so it’s safe to say Fire Station Creative couldn’t have opened without his support.

“He was a man who loved his community.”

All funds raised at the event will go towards Prostate Scotland.

It has been organised by Bob’s friend from his Woodmill High School days, Alan Forrester.

The pair had played rugby together, though fell out of touch in later years, and Alan was inspired to launch the annual concert after finding out about his friend’s death in the Press before he was able to catch up with him.

He will be supporting the headlining acts alongside Ron Halliday as a part of Ron & Al.

There will then be performanc­es from Robyn Smith, of RAAB, and Sandy Power.

The night will begin with a live dance performanc­e by Adriel Amadi and Sarah Elliott.

Tickets can be bought for the event, which takes place on September 1, from the venue or on Eventbrite.
