'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.

Welcome to the April Dubb-Letter. I had a wonderful time in Québec and Ontario last month. Here are a couple of photos for you:

 

Me and Guy Bélanger having a lot of fun on the Acoustic Blues Summit Tour in Québec. André Lachance, Yours truly, Guy, Paul DesLauriers, and Marc-André Drouin on the Finale of The Acoustic Blues Summit Tour. We all hit it off the first sound check and it just got better as the concerts went on. Great guys and really fine musicians.

We had a ball playing music but then the worst snow storm in the history of Québec and Eastern Ontario hit.

 

Here I am shoveling the snow so we could get the car out.

 

Jeez it was cold!

Then 4 more concerts in Ontario. Here's a photo of my National M-14 I call Jug waiting backstage at The Rainbow in Ottawa.

I won't be touring in April. I'll be spending most my time working on the story DVD 'Dubb's Front Porch' and the new album 'Break The Chain'. I'm proud to say my son Jesse joined me on the new album for Reference Recordings and co wrote the title track. Here's a shot from the photo shoot.

Thanks to  Mario Pronovost for the photos.
