Rock For MND Scotland 2019 on Saturday 14th September 2019
Note: Bring Your Own Bottle event - Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult
Rock For MND Scotland Overview
Following on from last year’s Rock For MND Scotland, which raised a magnificent
£1854.20 for MND Scotland, we are delighted to announce another night of fantastic music
at The Grant Hall, Rothes on Saturday September 14 th to raise funds for, and awareness of
This year’s line-up of local talent is The Fireflies, MacTa and students from Moray Music Lessons. All profits are going to the charity with artists donating their time and talents for this
Iain McWhirter, Head of Fundraising at MND Scotland, said:
“I’d like to thank all of the organisers and partners of the Rock for MND event for all
they are doing to raise awareness of Motor Neurone Disease and funds for MND
“Last year, their event raised an incredible £1,854 to help fund our vital services and
to power cutting-edge MND research. We’re grateful for the ongoing support of the
local community in Moray and we wish the organisers the very best in making this
year’s event as successful as last.”
The Rock For MND Scotland gigs are in memory of Craigellachie man James Combe, music
lover and school friend of members of The Fireflies, who bravely battled Motor Neurone
Disease. The band came from a “one off” performance at Craigellachie Hall in 2016 at a
special party for colleagues, friends and family of James after his diagnosis. They decided to
use their talents to raise money for charities including the 'Rock-for-ReMission“ and “Songs For Amelia' fundraisers for Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM), Motor Functional Neurological
Disorder (FND), and MND Scotland.
Support is provided by MacTa, a new five piece band based in Moray, who offer a wide and
varied range of musical styles from classic and contemporary pop and rock through to rock &
roll and country.
The idea of the gig is not only to raise funds for (and the profile of) MND Scotland, but also
provide a platform for young, up and coming musicians from the Moray area. So, talented
youngsters from Moray Music Lessons will open the gig. This will help develop their talents
by giving them the experience of playing in front of a live audience.
This is a “Bring Your Own Bottle” event;
Under 18s MUST be accompanied by an adult.
