An Evening With Dougie MacLean
For many years Dougie MacLean has led the development of Scottish music and song. He returns to Seattle in March as one of Scotland's most successful, respected and popular musicians. A 'magical' performer, he is also a fine guitarist, fiddle player and storyteller.
From his home base in Butterstone near Dunkeld in the beautiful Tay Valley in Perthshire Scotland, MacLean tours the world with his unique blend of lyrical, 'roots based' song writing and instrumental composition. His moving song Caledonia and melody The Gael (used in The Last of the Mohicans) have been recorded by hundreds of artists and enjoyed by millions worldwide.
Recently Caledonia was launched as the main star in the Homecoming Scotland 2009 TV advertising campaign. First Minister Alex Salmond said: Caledonia is a song that resonates with Scots the world over. For those far away it is a reminder of strong bonds, full of the promise of return. That is what makes it the perfect anthem for our Year of Homecoming.
Let Dougie MacLean share a wee bit of Scotland or take you home at the Museum of History and Industry in a solo concert presented by the Seattle Folklore Society.
