Dougie MacLean, Tannahill Weavers and friends reunion
Centered around the Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Perthshire Amber (the Dougie MacLean Festival) takes place in the heart of Scotland each autumn, with concerts in theaters, castles, and even an iron age crannog. It’s also a gathering place for musicians who have worked with singer songwriter MacLean through the years, and shared concert stages with him all across the globe. Fiona Ritchie sat with Dougie and a few of his musician friends to hear their stories and reflections on the music they’ve brought to the world over three decades.

This conversation featured Dougie MacLean, Roy Gullane, John Martin, Patsy Seddon and, later, Andy M. Stewart and Martin (Mame) Hadden. It was recorded exclusively for The Thistle & Shamrock. Excerpts were featured in a two-part special airing on many public radio stations across the U.S.
