Thread Name: Whatever Happened to Shelagh McDonald
Subject: Shelagh McDonald
The two albums of Shelagh McDonald have just been reissued again by Sanctuary as a double CD, and the notes are full of speculation as to what happened to her when she withdrew from the music scene in the 70s. Quite a mystery. I remember seeing her regularly at the Bristol Troubadour. Did anybody know her well enough to know where she was born or grew up, perhaps knew her on the club scene before she moved south from Scotland in the late 60s? It would be interesting to find out more of her story since so little seems to be known - maybe track her down. Obviously from the CD notes she can't know she's been re-issued and become a cult figure - she must be due some royalties!
