It's time to buy your tickets for Dougie MacLean - Live 70 ….our Special One Hour Concert called “Butterstone Burns” celebrating one of Dougie's heroes, and Scotland’s national poet, Robert Burns. Happening two nights before the annual Burns Night, this concert on Saturday January 23rd, 2021 at 9.00pm (UK time) is a 'must view'. Tickets available NOW from https://www.dougiemacleanlive.com
Many of you will have enjoyed Dougie's version of classic Burns songs like Green Grow the Rashes, Auld Lang Syne and Ca' the Yowes and been uplifted by the rousing Heiland Harry or Rattlin' Roarin' Willie... well you'll hear these and lots more on Saturday night...and won't be able to resist joining in a few choruses! If you can't manage Saturday night (or want to view it again...) the Butterstone Burns Concert will be available on demand for ticket holders until Friday 29th January at midnight (UK time).
A brief history…..repeated for those tuning in for the first time…We had the first broadcast of our wee live concerts from the Old Schoolhouse, Butterstone 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 over 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 for a while yet 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!
