Singer marks her return with festival spot

Singer marks her return with festival spot

SCOTTISH folk singer and songwriter Shelagh McDonald, who recently returned to public performances after an absence of more than 30 years, is among the guests at Solas Festival, which runs in Tibbermore in rural Perthshire from June 20-22. McDonald was tipped for major stardom on the world folk scene before her sudden departure from the music business and will be talking about the personal problems that affected her career, as well as appearing in a programme that includes music, literature, theatre, dance and visual art from King Creosote, Rachel Sermani, Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate, Alasdair Gray, Stanley Odd and Beerjacket.
