Caledonia Best has brought together folk icon Dougie MacLean and rising Dundee band Anderson, McGinty, Webster, Ward and Fisher (AMWWF) to record a new version of the iconic Caledonia.
The collaboration came after AMWWF recorded its own version of the ‘unofficial’ Scottish anthem for Caledonia Best’s first TV advertising campaign which was launched in December. The recording has proven popular and Caledonia Best brought Dougie and the band together for a session.
Paul Condron, Marketing Director at Tennent Caledonian, said, “For many Scots, Caledonia has become an unofficial national anthem and its lyrics evoke a great feeling of pride – Caledonia Best truly is an ale for Scotland and the song was a natural fit for our ad. We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response to Anderson, McGinty, Webster, Ward and Fisher’s version of the song for the ad, and it has been an honour to be able to bring the band together with Dougie MacLean. It’s great to be able to share the results of what was a fantastic session involving such talented artists, and I know this new recording will prove incredibly popular with music fans.”
