DOUGIE MacLean will be taking to the stage at the Alhambra Theatre for a rare performance.

The Caledonia singer is looking forward to taking advantage of the venue's "old theatre" feel as he brings his latest show to Dunfermline.

It will be one of a handful of concert and festival performances by the musician, who has recently reached new fans through live streaming online, this year.

For almost 50 years Dougie has played across the world, from Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall to Carnegie Hall in New York, London's Festival Theatre and Sydney Opera House.

But during the pandemic he took to a different platform - performing live online from his Old Schoolhouse in Perthshire for audiences in countries he has never been to.

More than 3.5 million people in almost 70 countries from every continent are known to have tuned in.

He's also made use of his atmospheric Old Farmhouse on the west coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, using cameras to transport viewers to his special spaces.

He said: “I’m amazed and still surprised at how much I enjoy the Live Streamed concerts.

"It’s definitely a very satisfying experience that continually brings out the unexpected and it’s somehow really gratifying to know that there’s an audience all over the world who genuinely appreciate my music, they choose to tune in and then they respond.

"It’s quite magical!

“I’m so looking forward to my concert at the Alhambra in September!

"It’s one of those venues which still has that ‘old theatre’ feel, with the proscenium arch over the stage and seating in layers, up to ‘the gods, where even a big audience feels close."

He will be performing in Dunfermline on September 2 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available from the Alhambra's Kingsgate Centre Box Office or via Ticketmaster.
