Calum MacDonald is an alternate / folk musician who has performed widely solo as well as in collaboration with other artists over several years.
The line ups have changed, the names haven’t always been the same but his writing has continued, developing into the story telling melodic tunes they are today.
His songs are about love, anger and regret. They contain stories of social awareness, of happiness, of pain, of the journeys that are shared by us all.
Growing up MacDonald was surrounded by an abundance of sounds. Recordings of Scottish traditional music, English folk, jazz and pop, everything from the big bands to trad jazz combos were being played.
Today his music is more akin to the contemporary folk, underground, alternate sounds of artists such as Bonnie Prince Billy, Bill Callaghan and Ron Sexsmith.

Calum MacDonald releases another wonderful album, “Life And Other Roses,” which is comprised of sweet and soulful acoustic Alternative Folk music. The compelling songs on this CD reflects MacDonald’s take on the adventures of life and love. His lyrics are insightful as he sings with a natural sounding tonality that will gently relax your heart and soul. The first track, “Coffee in Birmingham,” engages the listener with the soft and soothing charms of MacDonald’s voice and guitar. Another song, “Time Moves On,” is a tender song about love as MacDonald works his magic with his voice and guitar. You will be captivated by the sincere emotions of the vocals on the song, “Words,” as the guitar gently plays with warm and mellow chord progressions. If you’re a fan of Bob Dylan or Neil Young then you will appreciate the excellent set of songs on the CD, “Life And Other Roses.”
