"Gordon Maclean is at present Creative Director of Music & Literature at the An Tobar Arts Centre on the Isle of Mull.

Gordon is a talented bass player and has always been involved in music including a spell in legendary Edinburgh folk band Jock Tamson's Bairns. After moving back to Mull in the late 70s he worked on fishing boats for years followed by a decade working on the roads across Argyll, often driving a vintage road roller.

Gordon built a log house on the Ross of Mull where his two children grew up and started working at An Tobar in the late 90s. He's still doing the day job and outside of that he enjoys playing in bands with Dougie MacLean, King Creosote, Roddy Woomble and Iain Morrison. Gordon was recently promoted to Grandad!

Gordon has been involved with our Perthshire Amber festival since the very early days as a valued member of the organising team, looking after the sound for both the Open Mic and Cabaret Amber and performing on many occasions at various venues ... as part of the Sorren Maclean Band, The MacLean Project and as part of many Dougie with Friends line-ups and Farewell 'Bashes!"-Amber Central

descriptions, reviews, &c.

Scottish improviser Raymond MacDonald (Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra) and Gogs AKA Gordon Maclean, the Creative Director of Music & Literature at the AnTobar Arts Centre on the Isle of Mull, met in Tobar and without discussion, in a single take, recorded these soulful, warm and well-balanced dialogs, a lyrical and cultured discourse between two friends. The recordings are beautifully captured, like sitting near the players on a cold night near the fire, listening to their warm, bluesy, soulful and passionately relaxed conversation.
