Dougie MacLean has built an international reputation as songwriter, composer and extraordinary performer on his own terms. His anthem Caledonia has topped the Scottish charts and become one of Scotland’s most popular contemporary songs. 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. Other appearances of note include sharing the stage with Lou Reed and Eddi Reader in the grounds of Culzean Castle at the Burns and A’ That festival, featuring on the BBC Hogmanay programme from Edinburgh Castle with James Taylor and sharing the bill with the legendary Mavis Staples at Glasgow‘s Royal Concert Hall. At Ely, he’ll be in fine company alongside other amazing celtic musicians in the line-up for our Sunday evening concert in Marquee 1.
