In Conversation With Maggie Bell
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Maggie Bell is the leading living Scottish musician who made their name in the heat of the rock revolution of the 1960's and is still performing at the highest level internationally. Luther Vandross sang backing vocals for her; she had Albert Collins guesting with her at Montreux, and she shared the stage with Joe Cocker, AC/DC and Miles Davis.
Of course, she knew everyone on the Scottish scene from Alex Harvey to Lulu; Frankie Miller to Brian Robertson, and, she fronted the most popular Scottish band of the late 60’s, Stone The Crows.
We salute her, and her contribution to Scottish blues, and ask her to talk to us about her life in music. With guitarist Sandy Tweeddale on hand, she may even sing some acoustic tunes too.
Vocally regarded as Britain's answer to Janis Joplin, Maggie Bell, founder member of Stone The Crows and singer of the hit, 'Hold Me' with B. A. Robertson returned to the UK music scene in 2006 and performed live at Led Zeppelin's one off reunion concert at London O2 in November 2007. Bell sang the end credits theme for the late 1970s ITV detective drama Hazell, with lyrics written by Judy Forrest and music by Andy Mackay. Her song "No Mean City", written by Mike Moran, was the theme music to the TV crime drama Taggart. She also appeared in a single episode of Taggart called "Evil Eye" in 1990, playing a gypsy fortune teller named Effie Lambie who is murdered early in the episode.
