Dougie MacLean's Caledonia Cantata BUY TICKETS NOW

Venue:Perth Concert Hall -
Date: Friday November 6th 2015.

The Perthshire Amber Festival is proud to present the premiere of this special
synthesis of the wealth of Dougie’s songs and instrumental music.

This very special performance brings together Perth favourite Dougie MacLean (famed
for his song "Caledonia" and composition "The Gael" used in "Last of the Mohicans")
with some of Scotland’s finest musicians including Jenna Reid (fiddle), Ross Ainslie
(pipes, whistles, mandocello), Sorren Maclean (acoustic guitar, vocals) and Iain
Sandilands (percussion) as well as the wonderful strings of the Perthshire Ensemble.

Dougie MacLean needs no introduction; as singer, songwriter, composer and
instrumentalist, no artist captures the soul of Scotland with more authenticity or
emotion. During his 40 years as a musician, audiences have been thrilled by
performances of his now classic songs as well as his Perthshire Amber Suite, the
Muir of Gormack, The Search and in 2014 the Perthshire Cantata. His "Caledonia
Cantata" beautifully fuses together the best of all this previous work with some
wonderful new songs and, of course, his engaging stories.

Once again he’ll present "an irresistible tapestry of tunes, rhythms, instrumental and orchestral colours,
harmonies and texture." (Michael Tumelty The Herald) and include much loved
songs like Broken Wings, She Will Find Me, This Love Will Carry and, of course, the
song that’s been called "Scotland’s alternative national anthem", Caledonia. A full
concert experience not to be missed!
