About Doc MacLean
2015 sees Doc back in the studio
with Colin Linden producing. It is also the "X" year of the National
Steel Blues Tour, so special events and appearances are planned.
Canada his relentless touring has reached nearly every area, and has
seen him paired up with Juno/Maple winning artists such as Big Dave
McLean, Michael Pickett, and Morgan Davis for headline theatre,
concert, and festival appearances. (to hear a live track, play
"Jimmie Lee Jackson's Blues" and "Feel Like Goin' Home.") Fall 2013
and 2014 featured tours with Mississippi's Libby Rae Watson, and an
increased emphasis on southern shows and festivals.
1972, he formed a duo with another young musician, Colin Linden,
(Grammy nominated producer and recent Dylan guitarist) and became a
frequent and popular opener for Sonny Terry & Brownie McGee, Muddy
Waters, and John Hammond.
appearing most often as a solo performer, he is equally comfortable
at a folk festival workshop, priming a rowdy blues festival crowd,
or telling a story in a hushed theatre. In his father's footsteps,
Doc's concerns for social justice have lead him to perform in the
prisons, soup kitchens, picket lines, and hospices of the many
communities he passes through.
