First here’s the Dougie MacLean - Live Story so far …
A brief history…..
We had the first broadcast of our wee live concerts from the Old Schoolhouse in Butterstone on March 21st 2020 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 over almost three million views of the free of charge’ concerts via Facebook, Vimeo and YouTube from almost 60 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. In August 2020 we developed further the great weekly connection we’d made with our global audience. A ticketed concert once a month (the other Saturdays remained 30 mins and free of charge) has helped us to continue and develop sharing the music. On a few occasions, once travel was allowed, we broadcast from the Old Farmhouse on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis!
So it's always been experimental ... and is still a part of life's adventure as we continue to emerge from lockdown and restrictions! To (on occasion) link our ever growing global audience for the special ticketed concerts with a limited sized audience ‘on the ground’ could mean that those visiting Scotland at different times of the year can book a ticket for what they have experienced from afar! We will do our best to make sure that each venue is welcoming, and very ’special’ in some way.
To start with here's some of the information from the venue re the latest Covid 19 situation in Scotland regarding events as well as parking at the venue ...
"From the 21st of March 2022, we are delighted that events are able to go ahead in our venue with very little Covid restrictions. We do however suggest that you continue to Lateral Flow before and after attending any event at Cardney Steading. We cannot enforce the wearing of masks however would indeed recommend that you wear one if it makes your visit to Cardney more enjoyable and continue to wash your hands regularly. Hand Sanitisation stations continue to be in place throughout the venue.
