Dougie MacLean

Dougie MacLean


"Scotland's pre-eminent singer-songwriter and a national musical treasure" (SingOut USA) has developed a unique blend of lyrical, 'roots-based' songwriting and instrumental composition.

He has built an international reputation as songwriter, composer and extraordinary performer which has led to concerts and festivals all over the world, including New York's Carnegie Hall, Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall and London's Festival Theatre.

His ending of the Closing Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow - with Kylie Minogue and Lulu - was viewed by more than a billion people worldwide!

Dougie's work has been covered by hosts of artists, including Paolo Nutini, Amy MacDonald, Ronan Keating, Mary Black, Frankie Miller and Kathy Mattea.

His song Caledonia has become one of Scotland's most popular contemporary songs, his music has been used in films such as Last of the Mohicans and T2 Trainspotting and TV drama such as BBC's A Mug's Game, and he's been the subject of three BBC TV music documentaries.

Dougie has numerous gold discs for album sales, two prestigious Tartan Clef Awards, a place in the Scottish Music Hall of Fame, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and an OBE!
