SHELAGH MCDONALD AND NIGEL H SEYMOUR

International singer-songwriter Nigel H Seymour and the legendary folk rock singer Shelagh McDonald are once again treading the boards of the concert stage and doing several ‘one off’ concerts throughout the summer months.

Shelagh McDonald’s story is the stuff of legend today, after her rise to international fame in the early 70’s, she ‘disappeared’ after three very successful album releases… only to appear again in the mid 2000’s with a story which would make most hairs stand on end!
