Meeting Dougie MacLean at the Jura Music Festival

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.
