JAZZ | Doug MacLeod


As a blues performer, Doug MacLeod has lent his talents to Big Joe Turner, Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, Big Mama Thornton, and many more. As a composer, his songs have been covered by Albert King, Albert Collins, Eva Cassidy, and others. He's won just about every award a blues man can win and yet ... he's still got the blues, and that's just fine with appreciative audiences all over the country. He's learned from the greats, but MacLeod has his own philosophical, storytelling approach to the genre, not to mention some great finger picking.

Doug MacLeod plays Tuesday, October 10, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $15 advance; $20 at the door. 271-3354;;
