Doug MacLeod

Music Room, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall

Friday 3rd November 2017 (doors 7pm, show 8pm)

Doug MacLeod is rightly acknowledged as a torchbearer of the acoustic blues. The man from St Louis, Missouri, is one of the last remaining bluesmen who learned from the old masters. He is highly respected for his superb song writing, and several of his songs have been covered by many artistes including Albert King, Albert Collins and Coco Montoya.

Doug is also a great storyteller, who enthrals his audience with the tales that have inspired his songs. As a performer, he is renowned for his finger-picking and bottleneck guitar wizardry, his warm soulful vocals and his wit, which combine to produce unforgettable live performances. A measure of the continued high regard in which he is held is his recognition by the Blues Foundation as the Blues Acoustic Artist of the Year in 2016 & 2017. Definitely not to be missed.

Latest release, 'Break the Chain', "...is a remarkable...... beautiful album. A showcase of acoustic blues." ROCK TIMES EU
