Born on June 23, 1927 in Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland, Kenneth McKellar was an accomplished tenor who first achieved fame as an interpreter of Scottish songs, notably those by poet Robert Burns. Although his later work encompassed light opera, sacred songs, and popular material, he remained associated with the heritage of his Scottish homeland. Despite a plethora of contemporaneous pop acts, McKellar was somewhat surprisingly nominated as Britain’s representative in the 1966 Eurovision Song Contest. His entry, "A Man Without Love," fared poorly, and at a time when such records typically sold well domestically, the ensuing single struggled to reach the Top 30. This aberration apart, the singer continued to enjoy a successful international career, particularly in countries boasting expatriate Scots. He died of pancreatic cancer at the home of his daughter in Lake Tahoe, CA on April 9, 2010. Kenneth McKellar was 82 years of age.
