Dick Gaughan (Scotland) www.dickgaughan.co.uk
Firstly, and most importantly, Dick Gaughan is a Scot, from Leith on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth. Never forget that and everyone will be okay. And once you hear the man sing the songs he loves most, the Scottish ballads of great antiquity, the “Muckle Sangs,” the spell is cast as you are drenched in the voice, the moment, and the emotion. You will never forget the man, his voice, or that he is a Scot. You may think for a moment you were born there yourself, or wish you were. With a rich career since the 1970s, Gaughan was a founding member of Boys of the Lough and Five Hand Reel.
