Thanks for stopping by the page of Dougie McQuillan Singer / Songwriter / Musician. I hope that you can find everything you need to know about me & what I can do for you. On this page you will find details of events (gigs), music & friends that I am involved with. You should also find posts about what I’ve seen & done on my travels plus, some of the shows & entertainers I follow & have seen over the years.
August is almost over & it appears that the Edinburgh Festival & Fringe has been a great success once again. The city has been as busy as I can ever remember. I’m at home during August & September following my return trip to the USA. It’s difficult when you’re travelling so much it’s hard to keep things together for gigs when you get home. I suppose you can’t get best of both worlds. The year started really well after my return from Thailand. Then I had great gigs at Murrayfield Wanderers RFC Social Club for the 6 nations matches. It was even better with Scotland winning the annual 6 Nations Scotland V England Calcutta cup match.
Sadly the Murrayfield Wanderers have lost their social club next to the National Stadium but they’re moving just down the road a bit to Murrayfield Ice Rink. So I’ll be performing in the new club for the Autumn tests. The game against South Africa is on Saturday 17th November. Let me know if you’re intending to come along & I’ll arrange entry for you. That will be after another trip abroad in October & November. As I mentioned earlier I am home during September & have some gigs already in the diary with a few openings still to be filled. So if you’re looking to make a booking just click on the link for the contact form.
Fags n’ Matches
The next gig with legendary Edinburgh band “Fags n’ Matches” will be at the Leith Dockers Club 0n Sunday October 7th where we will be joined by our great friends “The Cruisers”. There are only a few tickets left for this event so please contact us asap if you require tickets. The gigs at the Maybury Casino have been going well & we will be back there on Saturday 5th January 2019. So It’ll feel like a continuation of your New Years Party. Tickets will be on sale from the first week of December. Get in quick if you want tickets by calling Maybury Casino on 0131 338 4444. Or send us an email using the contact form by clicking here.
I’ve got a lot more travelling to do but between times I’ll still be entertaining & enjoying my local gigs around the country in the day centres and care homes in the afternoons as well as my weekend gigs in the clubs & pubs. Click on this Events link to find out if I’m playing anywhere near you.
