We met the man himself, Dougie MacLean, one of Scotland’s most successful, respected and popular musicians. Singer-Songwriter, Composer and ‘magical’ Performer, he is also a fine guitarist and fiddle player. His super popular song Caledonia and melody The Gael (used in The Last of the Mohicans) have been recorded by hundreds of artists and enjoyed by millions worldwide. When I met him, I was surprised by what a down to earth guy he is – his love for music is inspiring and is evidently translated into all his work. It is hard to listen to his music and not be moved. Here is a video of a short chat with him, at the Jura Music Festival, on Jura island, Scotland.
