Dougie MacLean is Scotland's pre-eminent singer-songwriter and makes a much-anticipated return to Perth Concert Hall to celebrate 50 years as a performing and recording artist. From his beloved home near Dunkeld, he has built an international reputation as a songwriter, composer and extraordinary performer which has led to concerts and festivals all over the world including New York's Carnegie Hall, Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall and London’s Festival Theatre. His ending of the Closing Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow (with Kylie Minogue and Lulu) was viewed by over a billion people worldwide!
Dougie’s songs have been covered by hosts of artists, including Paolo Nutini, Amy MacDonald, Ronan Keating, Mary Black, Frankie Miller and Kathy Mattea. His song Caledonia has become one of Scotland's most popular contemporary songs and his music has been used in films (including Last of the Mohicans and T2 Trainspotting), TV Drama (including BBC's A Mug's Game) and he’s been the subject of three BBC TV music documentaries. Dougie has received numerous gold discs for album sales, two prestigious Tartan Clef Awards, a place in the Scottish Music Hall of Fame, a Lifetime Achievement Award from BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and an OBE in the New Year Honours list!
