Dougie Mackenzie sang mostly Gaelic songs in his youth but was introduced to folk song at the famed Inverness Folk Club run by Duncan MacLennan, who mentored Dougie and gave him numerous songs.
Dougie is drawn to the Scots ballad language and the stories it carries to us from the past. He lists many influences and sources, including Jimmy Hutchison, Gordeanna McCulloch, Norman Kennedy, Adam McNaughtan, Jeannie Robertson and The Stewarts of Blair.
Dougie is well-known from appearances at many Scottish and English festivals over the years and has won many traditional singing competitions including Keith, Falkland, Kirriemuir and Aberdeen.
He is accompanied on several of the songs by Brian Miller on guitar, while Siobhan Miller and others add backing vocals. The album was recorded and produced by Ian McCalman at his Kevock Studio and when Ian Green heard the master he immediately invited Dougie to join Greentrax.
