Maggie Reilly


Our usual afternoon song selection is spiced with music from Maggie Reilly.  (Mon-Fri 14:00-16:00)

Maggie Reilly fronted the highly rated Scottish band Cado Belle in the late-seventies but she came to wider notice with Mike Oldfield in the 1980’s and sang lead vocal on two international hits: Moonlight Shadow and Family Man.

Since that time she has pursued a solo career, and her more recent albums have settled into a classic singer songwriter style some way apart from the electro/pop path she followed at the turn of the eighties.

She released the album ‘Looking Back Moving Forward’ in January 2009 which revisits some of her keynote songs from a career spanning nearly forty years.

Maggie’s latest studio album – ‘Heaven Sent’ – was released in October 2013.
