In Scotland during the mid-sixties, Donald McGeoch, like most teenagers of that time, was engrossed in the music of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones until a friend introduced him to the songs of the Corries, the Clancy Brothers, and Archie Fisher. From then on, he has been singing and performing traditional Scottish and Irish folk music.

Homeland, a song written by Donald is the title track on Bobby Watt's first solo CD. All You Ever Wanted a song about immigrant children who came to Canada from the U.K., also from the pen of Donald McGeoch, took second place in the 1996 Songs From The Heart competition sponsored by the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals.

Whether it's singing at festivals, folk clubs, house concerts or pubs, Donald spends most of his spare time performing or promoting folk music.

In 1996, Donald's busy schedule became even busier when he became Artistic Director of OCTOBERFOLK - the first-ever folk festival in Brantford. The 10th and last OCTOBERFOLK was held on Saturday, October 1, 2005 at the Brantford Best Western Inn.
