FOLK music fans are in for a treat in May when celebrated singer Dougie McLean will perform a solo set in Biggar.

The spring concert, organised by Clydesdale Folk Club, will see Dougie perform on Saturday, May 19, in Biggar Corn Exchange.

And the man who originally sang Caledonia is sure to pack out the local venue.

George Simpson, from Clydesdale Folk Club, said: “We are delighted to have finalised the details for our spring concert.

“Renowned for his song Caledonia, music for Last of the Mohicans and inspiring live performances, Dougie has a huge world-wide following.”
