DOUGIE MACLEAN HEADS SIX NEW ACTS IN CHRISTMAS CRACKER ANNOUNCEMENT FOR HEBCELT FANS
Dougie MacLean, one of Scotland’s most revered singer songwriters, is making a return to the Hebridean Celtic Festival next year, more than two decades after he helped launch the event which has become one of Scotland’s most successful music festivals.
MacLean, who appeared at the first HebCelt in 1996 and is in the festival’s Hall of Fame, will take his solo show to Stornoway in 2017.
He said “HebCelt is rightly regarded as one of the best festivals because of its unique setting, the wonderful atmosphere and great music programme.
I have a long connection to the island of Lewis and to the festival, dating back to the very first event, and it’s always a real joy to return to see so many friends and perform to the brilliant HebCelt audiences.”
