Biography

Moira Anderson (born 5 June 1938 in Kirkintilloch, East Dunbartonshire) is a Scottish singer.

After leaving school, Anderson quickly established herself at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow before getting her big break in the media after a successful audition at the BBC.

She landed her first job in the media, presenting the radio programme Can’t Help Singing where she sang with some prestigious names from the world of opera. She went on to make many appearances in the TV series The White Heather Club hosted by Andy Stewart.

She went on to host her own television show, the vastly popular Moira Anderson Sings which ran for several years. By 1970 she had signed up with the Decca Record Company, performed at the London Palladium and was hosting yet another show Stars On Sunday which ran from 1969 - 1977. Anderson has gone on to create many albums and is renowned for her charity work.

In her early career Moira made frequent appearances alongside fellow Scottish music stars, Kenneth McKellar and Andy Stewart. In the early 1980s she made a highly successful album of duets with Sir Harry Secombe. Musical directors over the years have included Peter Knight, Peter Hope, Robert Docker, Robin Stapleton, Peggy O’Keefe, Bernard Sumner, Nick Ingman and Gordon Cree.
