Biographical history

Dougie MacDonald, born 1968, was a fiddler who grew up in the Queensville, Inverness County area of Cape Breton [Nova Scotia], and was inspired by the famous fiddler-composer Dan Hughie MacEachern who was a neighbour, mentor, and close family friend. Over the years, Dougie released four albums and published a book of original fiddle tunes and also recorded songs at Solar Audio & Recording Limited in the late 1980s. His music travelled internationally and his compositions have been played by such notables as Jerry Holland, Sharon Shannon, Howie MacDonald, The Barra MacNeils, Solas, Rodney Miller, Otis Tomas, Liz Doherty and Máire O'Keeffe. Though not a full time professional musician, Dougie did have the opportunity to perform in Ireland, Scotland, Canada and the U.S. and participated in events such as the annual Celtic Colours International Festival and the annual Broad Cove Concert. Sadly, in the last week of 2009, between Christmas and the New Year, MacDonald died in a car accident. He was only 41 years old.
