Lauchie MacLellan or "Lauchie Dan N." was a well known Gaelic tradition bearer and singer born and raised in the Dunvegan area of Inverness County, Cape Breton. A number of his songs and stories were collected by John Shaw, among others, and appear in the book 'Brigh an Orain; A Story in Every Song: The Stories and Songs of Lauchie MacLellan.' Aside from working his farm, MacLellan worked as a carpenter, as did his father and brothers. He was a skilled singer, learning his songs 'from knee to knee' from local singers and composers in his area.
