Celebrating his 50th year of song-making and performance!

“Dougie MacLean is Scotland’s pre-eminent singer-songwriter and a national musical treasure” (SingOut USA) who has developed a unique blend of lyrical, ‘roots based’ songwriting and instrumental composition.

He is internationally renowned for his song ‘Caledonia’, music for ‘Last of the Mohicans’ and inspired performances … from London’s Festival Theatre and Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall to New York’s Carnegie Hall and Sydney’s opera House! His songs have been covered by Paolo Nutini, Amy MacDonald, Ronan Keating, Mary Black, Frankie Miller, Cara Dillon, Kathy Mattea and many other top performers.

Achieving his 50th year as a professional musician in 2024, his popularity is still growing as his weekly broadcasts begun in March 2020 from his Old Schoolhouse (renamed a Global Streaming Theatre) have reached over 4 million viewers in 70 different countries!

He has received two prestigious Tartan Clef Awards, a place in the Scottish Music Hall of Fame, a Lifetime Achievement Award from BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, an Honorary Doctorate and an OBE!

“…a Scottish phenomenon…with his exquisite guitar style, expressive voice and honest performance, his songs conjure up remarkably vivid imagery of our world” (The PerformingSongwriter, USA)

“Strong yet subtle, hauntingly evocative yet contemporary in feel, this music demands listening to over and over again.” (Time Out, UK)

“ …a musical hero” (Wall Street Journal)
