Cafe de Amer present Doug Macleod
Doug MacLeod is one of the last remaining bluesmen who learned from the old masters, lived the music, survived the life and carries forward that valuable tradition. Within the blues world, MacLeod is known for his superb songwriting, guitar wizardry, warm soulful vocals, wit and unforgettable live performances
Doug MacLeod, now there's a man who can really play the blues.
David Honeyboy Edwards
Aside from being one of the finest guitar players in the business, MacLeod really connects with his audience. His sets are more than music. They are "homegrown lessons" in life and love. MacLeod is one of the finest songwriters, storytellers and performers in the blues. In a world intoxicated with electric-everything MacLeod is preserving a lost art... A must for any serious fan of the blues and any soul who needs the healing of the blues.

On his first visit to Australia, Doug MacLeod was the one act I was particularly looking forward to seeing. A contributing writer to our sister publication Blues Revue, MacLeod is a great storyteller, songwriter, and raconteur and, to say the least, one of the finest exponents of acoustic Blues and slide guitar around. He played songs, each accompanied by a story, from his albums Dubb and Where I Been, both highly recommend, as well as his recent live DVD release.
