Dougie Maclean returns to An Lanntair and our Members have exclusive access to tickets before they go on general sale on the 18th of April.
Dougie has built an international reputation as songwriter, composer and extraordinary performer on his own terms. This talent has taken his performance to concerts and festivals all over the world and to the stages of Carnegie Hall in New York, London’s Festival Theatre and the Sydney Opera House.
His songs have been covered by hosts of artists including Scottish stars Paolo Nutini & Amy MacDonald, Irish greats Ronan Keating, Mary & Frances Black, Dolores Keane, Deanta and Cara Dillon, and Grammy award winning US country singer Kathy Mattea. His anthem Caledonia has topped the Scottish charts and become one of Scotland’s most popular contemporary songs. His music has been used in Hollywood films (eg Last of the Mohicans), TV Drama (eg BBC’s A Mugs Game) and he has been the subject of three BBC TV Specials (The Land – Songs of Dougie MacLean, SongRoads and Clann na Mara – Children of the Sea).
“Strong yet subtle, hauntingly evocative yet contemporary in feel, this music demands listening to over and over again.”
“..a Scottish phenomenon… with his exquisite guitar style, expressive voice and honest performance, his songs conjure up remarkably vivid imagery of our world.”
(The Performing Songwriter, USA)
“..a musical hero.”
(Wall Street Journal, USA)
