Bluesman Doug MacLeod in Hood River Oct. 17
Blues Music Foundation award winner and 2014 Best Acoustic Player of the Year Doug MacLeod brings his “superb songwriting, guitar wizardry, warm soulful vocals” to The Pines Tasting Room (202 Cascade) on Friday, Oct. 17. Show starts at 6 p.m. with opening act Kit Garoutte and tickets are $20 available at The Pines and Waucoma Bookstore.
Critics say MacLeod “is a singer-songwriter in the American tradition. He is a traveling artist that writes and sings original songs that are based on his own life and experiences. He learned from the old masters, lived the music, survived the life and carries forward a valuable tradition. At the heart of this is his knack for storytelling, bringing characters-from the faceless to the legendary-to strikingly real life.”
