Dougie MacLean in concert plus Mills (CD Launch)
Saturday 17 June 2017, 19:30
Dougie MacLean, one of Scotland's best loved and respected singer/composer/musicians, is in concert on the 17th of June in the Volunteer Hall Galashiels. This Scottish music legend is well known for writing the theme music for blockbuster The Last of the Mohicans and our other national anthem Caledonia. He has already received 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 and has been described as “ ...a musical hero” in the Wall Street Journal in the USA! He will take to the stage to entertain a Borders audience performing songs well known to many people.
Dougie's concert will also be highlighting some of the Borders best talent. Firstly Millie Hanlon Cole a young massively talent singer songwriter from Peebles. Who has songwritting abilities well above her years.
Plus Borders super group Mills. A band first formed in March 2015 from members of five different bands or music projects in the Borders with the aim to help promote local music and our region. These guys are already making headway in the Scottish music industry. They have been recording with Donald Shaw who is founder member of Capercaillie and Artistic Director at Celtic Connections Scotland's biggest music festival. They will be launching their debut CD (Where Do You Go) on the night and are over the moon they'll be on the same stage as Dougie MacLean.
