Born in Scotland Michael Callaghan 'aka' CAL and his band delivers pure Scottish music. CAL has been #1 in the top 10 on Highlander Radio's most requested songs in the past 7 days. Celtic Radio, for almost 3 months now, has 10 of his songs in the top 500 best of all time favourites. CAL's music is the soul of Scotland. The band members consist of: Cal: lead, rhythm, whistles, electronic pipes, lead vocals; David Lindsay: drums, backing vocals; George Abbott: lead guitar, backing vocals; Graham Brown: bass , backing vocals; Robin Mather: keyboard, backing vocals.
After the departure of Donnie Munro from Runrig, Cal auditioned for this position and got down to the last in Scotland. He founded his own record label (Cal Music) and so he was able to write, record and promote his own songs while keeping all copyright control together. 1998 CAL recorded his first CD, the cover song album 'VINTAGE YEARS', in response to the many requests at his live performances which proves that saying 'the old ones are the best'.
In 2005 Cal played at the Celtic Tsunami Appeal Concert (Music Hall, Aberdeen) along with the Donnie Munro Band, Dougie McLean, Fiona Kennedy and many more and also at the Runrig manager's birthday bash. He also recorded a new CD and so 'Calling You' was followed by the limited edition CD 'ROSE AMONG THE HEATHER' with three new songs and also a remix of 'Scotland A Part Of Me'.
