A SOLD-OUT charity gig night was held at Weir Pumps Social Club in memory of a late Alloa guitarist.

Featuring seven different acts, the rock music event was held to remember Stewart Lindsay, a member of the band Free Guinness, who lost his life to cancer in 2020.

The sell-out gig, dubbed Rockin’ in the Free Guinness, took place at the social club on Saturday, November 19 with all proceeds raised going to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Initially, five acts were booked including Stewart’s former band Free Guinness and friends, Nae Danger, Scoogz & Wing ‘N’ It, Martin Mullady and Mike Munro.

Janice Duncan and Kieran Fisher were also booked in as late additions.

Greig Redfern, a member of The Jolly Boys, told the Advertiser he was thrilled to finally get a chance to do a live show in memory of Stewart.

He said: “When Stewart passed away a couple years ago, we did an online gig during lockdown.

“We always spoke about putting it on when Covid was over and there were no restrictions.

“So, we finally got to put it on and it was great.”

Stewart was a member of Free Guinness who performed for several years before his passing.

“He was a cracking guy and a brilliant musician”, Greig added: “Always had a smile on his face.

“During the lockdown, we created an online pub called The Jolly Inn and he used to play the gigs for it.

“If there was ever a charity night, he was always the first name on the sheet.

“Everyone that met Stewart liked him – you couldn’t not like him.

“He always had time for everybody and always had a smile on his face.”
