Dougie MacLean is 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. This collection of tunes is among the first of Putumayo's important single-artist releases. The centerpiece of the collection is "Caledonia," a lovely homesick ballad which has become the unofficial anthem of Scottish nationalism. Throughout the album MacLean's sparkling acoustic guitar work is evidence of the long years he put in playing traditional Celtic tunes with such top Scottish folk bands as Silly Wizard and the Tannahill Weavers. Enjoy an exceptional Putumayo album.
