The Plumas County Arts Commission proudly pre- sents one of Scotland's finest cultural exports, l)ougie Macl,ean, in concert at the Town Hall Theatre, 469 Main Street in Quincy on Wednes- day, Oct. 17, for a 7:30 p.m. concert. Dougie lights up a room, makes your heart swell to twice its size. and (coming from a culture where he tells us "music is a participatory experience") has you tat~phl~ your toes and singing along--even if you don't think you're the sort to do so. Dougie (pronounced Doo?gie) has established an enduring career in his native Scotland, where he has built a steady chart presence and a reputation as one of the country's finest contempo- rary songwriters and per- formers. His innovative work has created a modern interpreta- tion of traditional music, which remains rooted in the ancient Scot culture. The Plumas County Arts Commission was able to se- cure one of only eight dates on Dougie's U.S. 2001 Fall Tour. He will perform in only two other California loca- tions--Northridge and Berkeley--as well as in Columbus, Ohio, Chicago and Newport, Ill., and Tuc- son, Ariz. His musical career began with the Tannahill Weavers, an energetic Celtic folk group that, like contempo- raries Fairport Convention, mixed and matched tradition with elements of rock and pop. He also played in the well-regarded Scottish outfit bar & grill Presents Dinner and Wine Every Friday Night in October 7"00 pm - Featuring- Rich Robeson from Winebow Italian Wine Importers Chef Scan Conry will prepare your meal with the food and wine from Southern Italy.
