“Dougie MacLean is Scotland's pre-eminent singer-songwriter and a national musical treasure” (Sing Out USA) who has developed a unique blend of lyrical, 'roots based' songwriting and instrumental composition. He has built an international reputation as 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.

MacLean’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 Hollywood films (eg Last of the Mohicans), TV Drama (eg 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!

His second visit to Folk in the Barn – last time he sold out the Canterbury Cathedral Lodge, we are thrilled he is coming back to Canterbury to pay a first visit to the Gulbenkian Theatre.  Dougie is just wonderful - a beautiful singer, moving songs and one of our favourites here at Folk in the Barn.

“A musical hero”  Wall Street Journal
"...a Scottish phenomenon...with his exquisite guitar style, expressive voice and honest performance, his songs conjure up remarkably vivid imagery of our world"
