Gig: Doug MacLeod – Liverpool – 3 April

Posted on: Friday, Mar 21, 2008


Doug MacLeod
at The Harbourside Club, Liverpool Marina
Thursday 3rd April 2008 (doors: 8pm, show starts at 8.45pm)

Doug MacLeod makes a welcome return to The Harbourside Club, after his terrific show in March last year. Rightly acknowledged as a torchbearer of the acoustic blues, Doug, from St Louis, Missouri, is one of the last remaining bluesmen who learned from the old masters. He is highly respected for his superb songwriting, 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. In the words of Delta Blues legend, Honeyboy Edwards, “Doug MacLeod, now there’s a man that can really play the blues.”
