About Dougie MacLean and support
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Although 2018 marks 40 years since Dougie MacLean’s debut album – whose title track was his most iconic song, ‘Caledonia’ – the perennially popular songsmith’s performing career began even earlier, in his high-school band with future Silly Wizard members Andy M Stewart and Martin Hadden, after which he spent three years with the Tannahill Weavers. But it’s as a solo artist, of course, that he’s long been one of Scotland’s most successful folk musicians, a status trebly affirmed in the last decade by his 2008 induction into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame, an OBE in 2011, and a Lifetime Achievement accolade at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
Following two folk/classical recordings – Till Tomorrow, with the RSNO, in 2014 and 2016’s Caledonia Cantata – MacLean released New Tomorrow in 2017, combining concert favourites with new compositions, centred as ever on themes of home, land and love. “MacLean has remained true to form over decades” (Columbus Dispatch)
Releasing her eighth studio album Metanoia in November, prolific songwriter Yvonne Lyon dove into her rich back catalogue, creating a bold tapestry of re-imagined and remixed originals.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Dougie MacLean and support are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
