Scott MacNaughton (28.07.75 – 16.09.19) was a much-loved music head who had been knit into the scene here from the mid-nineties when he started playing in The Kitchen. He moved to Tarifa, in the South of Spain, back in 2008 where he was involved in a number of bar ventures as well as being a wedding and event DJ until his untimely death.
“Scott was part of a new generation of music tasters to also take advantage of bars – especially the ‘super’ bars – employing DJs. Some high profile residencies littered the late 90’s and early Noughties, among them Spirit (now known as The Academy), The Globe, The Kitchen, PoD and Hogan’s,” says his pal Tonie Walsh.
PLEASE NOTE NEW VENUE IS UKIYO!
“For so many Tarifeñans lucky enough to have surfed Scott’s easy charm and bonhomie, it was difficult to imagine any life he’d had before Tarifa, such was his economic and cultural commitment to the little town of creatives and hipsters. His bright energy and unfailingly generous disposition touched so many people. He will be hugely missed.”
Tonie will join DJs Billy Scurry, Hugh Scully, Arveene, Johnny Moy, Shay Hannon and many more for ‘Scotty’s Big Night Out’, a tribute night in Ukiyo on Friday November 15.
Tickets are €20 with all proceeds to his son Daniel.
