Unique opportunity to catch one of Scotland's most outstanding singer/songwriters and a National musical treasure delivering an intimate and inspired performance, including his world famous song Caledonia, at Newton Stewart Cinema for the Legends night concert at the 6th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival.

“Dougie MacLean is Scotland's pre-eminent singer-songwriter and a national musical treasure” (SingOut 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. His ending of the Closing Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow (with Kylie Minogue and Lulu) was viewed by over a billion people worldwide!

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 films (eg Last of the Mohicans, T2 Trainspotting), 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!

7th annual music festival

The 7th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will now take place over the 9th-11th July 2021 following the Trust's decision to re-schedule this year's event due to Covid-19. We are in negotiation with the artists booked for this year and hope to secure them all for 2021, plus a few extra surprises, so we'll be back with another packed programme of traditional music and dance next year. We hope you'll join us.
