Dougie MacLean comes to The Apex...

Scotland’s Dougie MacLean has built an international reputation as songwriter, composer and extraordinary performer. His song ‘Caledonia’ has become one of Scotland's most popular contemporary songs, and he has also written music for Hollywood (including the film, Last of the Mohicans) and television (e.g. BBC's A Mug's Game).


"Strong yet subtle, hauntingly evocative yet contemporary in feel, this music demands listening to over and over again." - Time Out.


MacLean’s songs have been covered by hosts of artists, including Paolo Nutini, Amy MacDonald, Ronan Keating and Mary Black. In August 2014 he had the honour of performing his song ‘Caledonia’ (with his band) at the Closing Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, followed by ‘Auld Land Syne’ where he was joined by Kylie Minogue, Lulu and Deacon Blue as well as massed pipes and drums!


Dougie been the subject of three BBC TV music documentaries, he has received numerous gold discs for album sales, 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! “Dougie MacLean is Scotland's pre-eminent singer-songwriter and a national musical treasure” - SingOut USA.


His unique blend of lyrical, roots-based song-writing and instrumental composition has built an international reputation and 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.


"...a Scottish phenomenon...with his exquisite guitar style, expressive voice and honest performance, his songs conjure up remarkably vivid imagery of our world" - The Performing Songwriter, USA.
