Dougie MacLean

Dougie MacLean is one of Scotland's premier singer/songwriters. A past member of the Tannahill Weavers and Silly Wizard, MacLean has used his songs, including "Caledonia," "The Singing Land," and "Solid Ground," to capture the natural beauty of his hometown on the border between the Highlands and the Valley of Strathmore.

MacLean first attracted attention as a teenager when he formed a band with future Silly Wizard members Andy Stewart and Martin Hadden. While performing as a street musician in Kinross in 1974, MacLean was invited to join the Tannahill Weavers. He remained with the group for three years before he moved to Germany and launched his solo career. For a while, MacLean also performed in a trio with Alex Campbell and Alan Roberts. MacLean's breakthrough came with the release of the album Caledonia in 1979. Returning to Scotland in 1980, he spent six months as the replacement for fiddler Johnny Cunningham in Silly Wizard. Although he temporarily returned to the Tannahill Weavers, he resumed his solo career in 1981.

In addition to his busy schedule as a touring singer/songwriter, MacLean has been an influential record executive, having founded Dunkeld recording studios and record label with his wife, Jennifer, in 1983. Among the many tradition-rooted Scottish musicians who have recorded for the label, whose slogan is "Scotland's new heritage music," are Sheena Wellington, David Allison, Gordon Duncan, Hamish Moore, and Frieda Morrison.

A tour of the United States in 1989 was conducted in conjunction with Fiona Ritchie's National Public Radio show, Thistle & Shamrock. The following year, MacLean returned to the U.S. for a 17-concert tour with other Dunkeld artists. In 1995, MacLean played guitar and sang harmony on country artist Kathy Mattea's Good News album and toured as the opening act for Mattea's North American tour. Several of MacLean's songs were heard on the soundtrack of the film The Last of the Mohicans. In 1993, MacLean served as music director of the TAG Theater Company's production of A Scots Quair. A 40-minute documentary on MacLean's life and music, The Land: The Songs of Dougie MacLean was aired by the BBC.

Tracks from MacLean's three albums on the Plant Life label were assembled on the 1997 album The Plant Life Years. A sampling of tunes from MacLean's albums on Dunkeld were included on the 1995 album The Dougie MacLean Collection. MacLean's subsequent noteworthy releases have included Riof (1997), Perthshire Amber and Live from the Ends of the Earth (both 2000), Who Am I (2002), Inside the Thunder (2006), and the limited-edition EP Muir of Gormack (2007). ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

Have loved Dougie since he first began and will always love this music.
Brilliant son of Perth!
Not only is Dougie MacLean a phenomenal singer-songw r i t e r , but he is also a remarkable human being, with a love for the Earth, particularly his homeland, that is both searing and inspiring. In addition to loving his music and voice, I also love his humanity.
Omg! I love his voice and his way of playing to guitar. His voice is so authentic. I wish he would sing some of the more well known tradition Irish songs like Scarborough fair and Star of the county down.

Dougie is a remarkably talented artist! His music is rooted in ancient themes and it is timeless... he's truly a national treasure of Scotland. ..and my kinsman.

Dougie is great! I bought his songbook that includes Caledonia. Dougie's music has inspired me to keep working on the guitar.
His song The Gael was the basis for The Kiss on the Last of the Mohicans soundtrack.
Thought he was also a member of Battlefield Band

I saw him in North Carolina in 89-90 as part of the Thistle&Sham r o c k tour. It was fantastic. A great memory. A young Duncan Gordon was also part of that tour. Love Dougie. He was one of the first Celtic artists I ever heard on the radio.
Dougie is a Scottish national treasure!

Some people are singers - and some select few are SINGERS. Dougie is one of those.
Been listening to him for years, & surely love the magic of his music & prose.
I've never heard this before. Sounds a little like Dan Fogleberg. Pleasant.

I just cannot get enough of Dougie Maclean's music. I sat at my computer one afternoon recerntly and went through all the YouTube I could find of his music, it was great. I just wish he would do a show in Texas so i could see him lve.
Dougie came to play in our small town in northern Minnesota, and we were so impressed. May Dougie have great life, love and prosperity for creating music that can help others to feel more complete and real

My son and I traveled in Scotland for 3 weeks this summer and loved every moment. We were lucky enough to hear Dougie MacLean and appreciate his special voice and lyrics. Wow, are we blessed for such a special experience.
My favorite Scottish singer/songw r i t e r bar none. Shoot, favorite folk singer bar none. Would love to own his entire set (they used to have all collected in nice wooden boxes....coo l . (and I don't usually fall for such promotions)
