Delta Music Experience invites you to experience Doug MacLeod, the Story Telling Bluesman

October 24th For more details and reservation information click here.

We're so happy to have Doug in a return engagement House Concert.

Doug 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.

As a youth, MacLeod overcame inexpressible abuse and a crippling stutter by turning to the blues. "I had it really rough," he says. "I don't remember much, but the product of that was a terrible stutter. Honestly, I couldn't speak two words. I felt that I wasn't gonna be able to speak. And then I picked up the guitar, and I just tried to sing-and this voice came out. I really haven't stuttered much since."Healing music indeed!"

Your entry contribution of $25.00 goes to the Wurlitzer Manor Fund for Music and the Arts. This is a component fund of the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Past recipients of grants from this fund include local and regional blues societies, the Memphis - based Blues Foundation, the Chicago - based Luther Allison Endowment Fund, Port Townsend Acoustic (Country Blues) Workshop & Festival, Waterfront Blues Festival, Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Festival, and the Pacific Northwest Blues in the Schools program.
