Hey Dubbheads,

 

Here's what we have going on in February. Now before I get to the news I want to let you know that there's a little treat at the end of this Dubb-Letter.  A video of me telling the story of the first time I had a Belgian Beer.  Now don't go there right now!

 

OK? You'll make your way down to it? Promise? Thanks. :-)

 

Just in case you haven't heard, I've been nominated by The Blues Foundation for two 2017 Blues Music Awards for Acoustic Artist and Historical Album "Live In Europe".

 

If you are a fan of Blues, you might be interested in joining The Blues Foundation. And only Blues Foundation Members are eligible to vote for the Blues Music Awards.  So, if that's 'pulling your coat' some just click on their logo below for more information.

The new album 'Break The Chain' is coming along nicely. It's looking more and more that it will be available this spring. For sure we'll keep you posted.  We haven't forgotten the 'Dubb's Front Porch' DVD of my stories. That project is moving to the front burner real soon. Again - we'll keep you posted.

Well that looks like we got this Dubb-Letter buttoned up. Well almost. Here's that little treat I promised at the start. And I know you read the whole Dubb-Letter to get here!  Enjoy!

THE YEAR

Me and my lady Patti Joy with the 2016 Blues Music Award for Acoustic Artist Of The Year. With all the really talented acoustic artists in this category - it's a great honor.

'EXACTLY LIKE THIS' ONE OF THE YEAR'S BEST ALBUMS - DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE

'Exactly Like This' one of The Year's

Best Albums-Downbeat Magazine

Active since the mid-1980s and with about two dozen entries in his discography, Doug MacLeod sets up camp in a rare niche of storytelling bluesman that are attuned to the textures and rhythms of life.  On this excursion, the wry Californian's distinctive singing voice and straight-talking guitar comment on a "rough-and-tumble" woman, staying true to oneself, the road back home, the splendor of the Blue Ridge Mountains and more. Subtle and firm support is supplied by seasoned pros Mike Thompson on piano, Denny Croy on bass and Jim Botti on drums.
