A brief history…..repeated for those tuning in for the first time…We had the first broadcast of our wee live concerts on March 21st when lock-down (due to the Covid 19 epidemic ) began for us in Scotland. We broadcast free concerts every second night for 30 concerts, then twice a week til concert Live 40…and since then weekly. There have since been almost two million views of the free of charge’ concerts via Facebook, Vimeo and YouTube from many different counties and we know from messages and emails that Dougie’s music and stories are still really helping so many to cope with the unusual, challenging and sometimes frightening times. It’s unlikely that touring and live concerts will be happening at all in 2020 and we’d like to develop further the great weekly connection we’ve made with our global audience. A ticketed concert once a month (the other Saturdays will remain 30 mins and free of charge) will help us to continue and develop sharing the music ... so get your tickets by 9pm UK time and join us. It's all another one of our experiments ... a still a part of life's adventure!

Keep looking after yourselves and each other and keep cheery!

Cardney Concert Ticket News...24th November 2020

Way back in May, when we needed to postpone the Cardney Concerts (for a second time due to Covid 19), we believed that re-scheduling to March 2021 was a really safe way to proceed. We said then that tickets would be on sale from November 24th 2020. Little did we know then what a year it would be!…

The March 2021 dates for the Cardney Concerts are looking unlikely because of advice we have received relating to the organisation of concerts and festivals before the summer of 2021. Therefore tickets will not be on sale for those dates.

We can’t say at present what the Cardney Concert dates will be in 2021…or when tickets will go on sale. When it has been decided that is is safe to organise inside concerts for audiences of 200+ at Cardney we will reschedule and announce on Dougie’s website, Facebook and via the Dougie MacLean newsletter when tickets will go on sale.

We hope that everyone reading this stays safe and well … and that we see you all at some time during 2021.

We have heard from people of all ages who are living in so many different situations… do carry on letting us know where you’re viewing from … and please keep sharing this to spread the word even further to friends and family…or to anyone you think would enjoy the music!

The Sherpa people are a distinct indigenous group with a rich heritage and culture. Preserving local traditions and the way of life is a key priority for those that live in the Khumbu - the Sherpa homeland.
