Perthshire’s national treasure, singer-songwriter Dougie MacLean OBE has performed on some of the world’s biggest stages from New York’s Carnegie Hall to London’s Festival Theatre.
However his next concert will be a little closer to home at Cardney Steading - one of our area’s newest and most intimate venues, situated in an area that has inspired many of Dougie’s songs over the years.
Nestled on a hill with stunning woodland and loch views across the Perthshire countryside, The Cardney Concerts is the first musical event to take place at the venue and will give audiences a chance to see Dougie perform some of his hits alongside new material twice – on June 5th and 6th at 8pm.
Scottish Music Hall of Famer Dougie has been delighting international audiences young and old in a musical career spanning over 50 years which has produced best-loved works such as Caledonia, The Gael (from The Last of the Mohicans film) and Ready for the Storm. His music has been covered by a host of artists including Paulo Nutini, Amy MacDonald and Ronan Keating.
And the acclaimed performer with a string of accolades to his name, including a Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to song writing in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, is delighted to bring audiences to the area he calls home.
“I’m really proud to bring people to my home region. I’ve been doing it for years with our Perthshire Amber Festival, but it’s lovely to welcome people here in summertime,” said Dougie.
the acclaimed performer is delighted to bring audiences to the area he calls home“Perthshire has such natural beauty throughout the year, it’s great to playing here and welcoming music fans from near and far to this brilliant new venue.”
With bookings already from fans around the globe, organisers are expecting the evening concerts to sell out. Doors open at 7.30pm. There will be options to take a return shuttle bus to the estate from Dunkeld and pre-concert soup and pies as well as drinks from the bar will be available. Guests should also take the opportunity to stroll around the wonderful surroundings at Cardney.
Organisers suggest pre-booking shuttle buses and food.
Tickets are available to buy online from Dougie’s website.
