R.I.P Margot Moir Of The Moir Sisters 1959-2015

Margot Moir, one of the three Moir Sisters, has died in Melbourne at age 56.

Margot was the middle sister to Jean and Lesley Moir, who in 1974 had a no. 8 Australian hit as The Moir Sisters with ‘Good Morning How Are You’.

The Moir family migrated to Australia from Scotland in the early 60s and settled in Melbourne. The sisters began singing in public together in 1970 and in 1974 won a New Faces talent contest on channel 9.

‘Good Morning How Are You’ was released on EMI Records to capitalise on the exposure generated through the TV show. The Moir Sisters then released an album ‘Lost Somewhere Between Harmony’ in 1975 and toured Australia as support to The Osmonds.

Glenn Wheatley took over management of the girls and had them signed to Elton John’s Rocket Records for their next album ‘State Of Shock’. Despite a prestigious label and star producer in John Farrar the album failed to impact on the charts.

Friends say Margot had been ill for some time. However, an official cause of death is yet to be confirmed.
