Doug MacLeod, an award-winning and world-renowned Bluesman, will play Gainesville, Florida on Saturday, February 13, 2016. There are no advance ticket sales: the doors open at 6:30 and since this is an intimate venue and a proper setting of this artist, seating is limited. So get there early! General admission is $15, and NCFBS members get in for $8. Students w/ ID get in for $5.
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. At the heart of this is his knack for storytelling, bringing characters—from the faceless to the legendary—to strikingly real life.
“Like all great blues men, MacLeod lives his music, and the songs are not just on the tips of his fingers and tongue, they are one with his being.
– Blues Music Magazine
