The long awaited collection of Dougie MacLean’s melodies that spans over 40 years of his creativity. From the jigs, reels, marches and slow airs of the 1984 recording “Fiddle” through the music commissioned for the Loch Ness Exhibition (released as the album “The Search”), TAG theatre’s presentation of “Sunset Song” and the original “Perthshire Amber” suite to his recent “Metis Theme”... this collection contains some unforgettable gems.
These are melodies that have been performed on fiddle, whistle, mandolin or melodeon, covered by artists worldwide, used in film and television... tunes that suit every mood. Simply presented with melody line and guitar chords, Dougie MacLean “Tunes” contains 37 distinctive compositions. It also responds to frequent requests for an instrumental version of “Caledonia” and a fiddle version of “The Gael” ... and provides a pipe version of each as well!
