The Fife Music Column: Kevin Quinn reveals a special gig
Glenrothes singer songwriter Dean Chalmers is putting on a gig to raise funds for his deceased neighbour’s son.

Dean has called on some of Fife’s finest acts for this fund-raising gig on Saturday, 2 February at the Windsor in Kirkcaldy.

Joining him on stage will be Indie heroes Calm as the Colour, Ladybank boys Waiting on Jack, Glenrothes rockers Revolution, former Catch 22s guitarist Chris Corrigan, DJ Urban Atmosphere and partners in grime Supa J-Me and the Jazz Man. A truly great eclectic local line-up and a great effort by Dean for a cause close to his heart.

Chris Shand stayed in the same Collydean flats as Dean. Chris unfortunately passed away in  January 2012 after battling with depression.

Dean remembered Chris, he said: “I personally knew Chris through  being my neighbour and would consider us to be friends. He used to chap  my door every now and then for a chat about anything.”

Chris left behind a six year-old son, McKenzie, who lives with his mother in  England.

Dean added: “As a final favour to Chris, I  want to raise enough money to set up savings account, or trust fund type thing for when McKenzie gets that little bit older he can dip into it. Or  take a break away somewhere. Every little will help.”

All proceeds raised for this event will be split between the fund for  Kenzie (80%) and a donation to PETAL (People Experiencing Trauma & Loss)(20%).

Fundraiser for McKenzie, being held at the Windsor, Kirkcaldy, Saturday, 2 February. Tickets cost £6.
