As you're reading this the DVD of the concert at The Bugle Boy is on it's way to The Briscoe Center. Heck, it might be there now!
Well, a lot of things to tell you about this month. To begin with, I'm so proud to let you know that we got this news from Texas! "The Bugle Boy in LaGrange TX received a grant from the Albert and Ethel Herzstein Charitable Foundation to record and archive shows of artists who are important to the Texas or national music scene. Doug MacLeod - "You were chosen for this project because we believe that you as a performing artist are an integral part of the independent music scene and historically speaking should be included in this archiving project. If you read through the list of the BCAH collections below, you will find you are in good company with artists such as Willie, Nelson, Aretha Franklin, Townes Van Zandt, Janis Joplin, Johnny Winter & many others."
NOMINATED FOR THREE 2016 BLUES MUSIC AWARDS!

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.

"Like all great blues men, MacLeod
lives his music, and the songs are not just
on the tips of his fingers and tongue,
they are one with his being.
