Doug MacLeod - Blues Guitar

Sunday, February 16, 2020, 3:30 AM


ABOUT THE ARTIST AND THE SHOW: Like all great bluesmen, MacLeod lives his music, and the songs are not just on the tips of his fingers and tongue, they are one with his being.  MacLeod is known for his superb songwriting, guitar wizardry, warm soulful vocals, wit, and unforgettable live performances. At the heart of a Doug MacLeod performance is his knack for storytelling, bringing characters-from the faceless to the legendary-to strikingly real life. Doug is a multiple Blues Music Award winner, most recently the 2018 Blues Music Award for Acoustic Album Of The Year ‘Break The Chain’ and the 2017 Blues Music Award for Acoustic Artist Of The Year.  His newest release, ‘Break The Chain’, is quite possibly his strongest release to date, which speaks volumes.  Each song extremely personal and at the same time, universal; covering subjects topical, humorous, and soulful; from the satirical to the sublime.  The title song, ‘Break The Chain’, which was co-written and performed with his son Jesse. The song focuses on breaking the cycle of family violence and abuse, Doug and Jesse confront this pervasive issue directly. Together, they share the healing, reconciliation, and peace available to all who work to prevent the cycle and Break The Chain. Doug is an international touring artist who writes and sings original songs that are based on his own life and experiences. He learned from the old masters and carries forward a valuable tradition. As a youth, Doug overcame abuse and a crippling stutter by turning to music. After picking up a guitar, and singing - he found his voice. Like the old masters who taught him, MacLeod's music expresses life and times through an intangible, elusive quality that may simply be a keen sense of what matters most. Doug’s music, stories, and philosophy provide a healing that has helped others overcome the hardships of their lives. As Pee Wee Crayton's widow Esther once told Doug, "You have a message and you'll send that message mainly to the people who don't go to church." Amen. Remember...
