Shelagh McDonald

Shelagh McDonald

Like Syd Barrett before her, the story goes that Shelagh McDonald had one bad acid trip too many and disappeared from the music scene in 1972 leaving behind just two albums. Unheard of since 1970s, her whereabouts have been the subject to much speculation and whispered adulation. Sid Smith
