Guitarist Offers Master Class At High School

Big Bear Lake, California, October 20, 2012 – Singer/songwriter Doug MacLeod will present a Master Class for guitar students at Big Bear High School on Monday, November 5, 2012 at 10:00am, bringing a taste of the Delta blues to Big Bear Lake.   A traveling artist who writes and performs original songs, MacLeod learned his craft playing as a sidemen with an older generation of American blues artists, a most valuable tutelage.  The guitarist is known for his clever songwriting, guitar wizardry, soulful vocals, and witty performances. At the heart of his stage persona, is his knack for storytelling; expounding on characters he has met along the way — from the faceless to the legendary. MacLeod has developed a distinct, unorthodox and powerfully rhythmic acoustic guitar style, leading him to become an endorser for National Reso-Phonic Steel Guitars.  His slide work harkens back to primitive American blues, a genre that started as a form of communication among African-American slaves of the south. Early in his career he landed jobs playing in the bands of blues greats Big Joe Turner, Big Mama Thornton, Lowell Fulson, Pee Wee Crayton and  Eddie ‘Cleanhead’ Vinson.  Born in New York City in 1946, his career now finds him performing around the world in the folk blues tradition. Performing only his own compositions (of which he is credited with over 300), his music has also been...
