Dick Gaughan

Dick Gaughan has been at the cutting edge of Scottish music for over 4 decades. Guitarist, singer, songwriter, actor, musical director, composer, arranger, producer, engineer, he's been there, done it.

A full list of his musical collaborations would run to several pages and the huge range of diverse musicians he has played and sung with, both live and recorded, over the years reads like some manically eclectic Who's Who of the worlds of Celtic, Folk, Blues, Rock, Country and way beyond - Scottish Opera, 7:84 Theatre, Billy Bragg, Emmylou Harris, Tom Paxton, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Sean McGuire, Deacon Blue, Dan Crary, Alex Campbell, Maya Angelou, The Dubliners, Loudon Wainwright III, Holly Near, Ken Hyder, Dundee Rep Dance Company ... the list just goes on and on ... and on and on ... he's even step-danced a duet onstage with Cherish the Ladies' Joannie Madden.

Throughout his various incarnations as a member of Boys of the Lough, Five Hand Reel and Clan Alba, in occasional duos with Aly Bain, Andy Irvine, Johnny Cunningham, Brian McNeill and Allan Taylor, and as one of the hardest-working solo performers in any area of music, Dick Gaughan's work has consistently been innovative and challenging.

Over the past 40 years, Dick Gaughan has been the subject of numerous television and radio documentaries in several countries, has performed at probably every major Folk Festival throughout the world several times - and many other non-folk festivals including Reading, Roskilde and Glastonbury - has appeared at every one of the Celtic Connections festivals - and at every one of its forerunner, Mayfest - has recorded a couple of dozen albums solo and with bands and has produced/guested on countless others.

In recent years he has composed and arranged music for films and television dramas and his 90-minute orchestral work, "Timewaves - Lovesong to a people's music", was performed as the closing concert at the 2004 Celtic Connections festival. His first symphony, "Treaty 300", was one of the two pieces chosen to be performed at the inaugural concert of the Celtic Connections Youth Orchestra at the 2007 Celtic Connections festival.
