Great Scottish ballads and folk songs from a master of his craft!
DOUGIE MACKENZIE sang mostly Gaelic songs in his youth but was introduced to folk music at the famous Inverness Folk Club run by Duncan MacLennan, who mentored Dougie and gave him numerous songs. Dougie is drawn to Scots ballad language and the stories it carries to us from the past. He lists many influences and sources, including Jimmy Hutchison, Gordeanna McCulloch, Norman Kennedy, Margie Sinclair, The Gaugers, Jeannie Robertson, Lizzie Higgins, Bob Blair, Adam McNaughtan, Ann Neilson and the The Stewart Family of Blairgowrie.
Dougie is well-known from appearances at many Scots and English festivals over the years, and has won traditional singing competitions at Keith, Falkland, Kirriemuir and Aberdeen. On this his debut CD, Dougie is accompanied on several songs by Brian Miller, a Scottish guitarist with performing and recording credits including his daughter Siobhan Miller, The Occasionals, The Singing Kettle, Tom Paxton and Arthur Johnstone. More recently Brian was in the cast of 'Far, Far From Ypres'. Siobhan Miller adds backing vocals along with Ian McCalman, Charlie Milne, George Archibald and Ken McNaughton (referred to in the notes as The Kevock Chorus).
