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 here & things are hotting up for the Edinburgh Festival. The city is already busy. I’m 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. 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. Looking forward to going back there later in the year for the autumn tests! That will be after another trip abroad in October & November. As I mentioned earlier I will be home during August & September with some gigs already in the diary & quite a few openings to be filled. So if you’re looking to make a booking just click on the link for the contact form.
What happened to 2017?
Time seems to fly by nowadays. Maybe I’m just at that age? Lol! Last year was really good year for me. I did a lot of travellling & did some gigs in some amazing places. Middle of the Pacific Ocean comes to mind. Thank goodness I was on a ship at the time!
Right from January, my trip to Los Angeles then Hawaii & eventually Tahiti with Oceania Cruise Lines, went really well. Then I had a couple of weeks at home & a couple of “must do” gigs (Irish & Welsh Rugby weekends) before heading off to Cape Town for the second year running. After that, there was a short trip to Rome & a spot on the Med before heading back to the African coast.
Fags n’ Matches
The gigs with the legendary Edinburgh band “Fags n’ Matches” at the Maybury Casino, have been going well & have sold out! We’re back there again on Saturday 1st September. Get in quick if you want tickets by calling Maybury Casino on 0131 338 4444.
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.
