The MacLean Project

THE NEW DOUGIE MACLEAN BIG BAND

This year's Dougie MacLean Experience…not to be missed!
The perfect weave of sensitivity and power - from fragile moments and subtle harmonies to rousing choruses and lively instrumentals. This 10-piece line-up provides for the full dynamic of Dougie's catalogue of acclaimed and varied songs to be expressed and enjoyed.

The MacLean Project involves some of the very best of Scotland's musicians. The line-up for the special Friday night concert in Perth Concert Hall during this year's Perthshire Amber Festival is a wonderful array of varied talent.

The MacLean Project is a 10-piece band with Dougie MacLean on vocals, guitar, fiddle and digeridoo, Jamie MacLean, who plays drums and percussion and has produced his father's last three albums, as well as father and son Gordon Maclean (bass, vocals) and Sorren Maclean (acoustic guitar, vocals); Ross Ainslie (whistles, pipes, mandocello); Chris Marra (electric & acoustic guitar, vocals); Laura Beth Salter (mandolin, vocals); Pete Garnett (accordion, harmonium); Hannah Fisher (fiddle, vocals) and Gary Ebdy (extraordinary lighting!).
