Randy Crump reviews Doug MacLeod’s “Art for Your Ears” concert in the Wichita Blues Society’s “Blues Riff” newsletter:
“MacLeod, who is a master storyteller and very entertaining, explained the blues to an audience of over 300 people. Drawing on his 40 years on the road as a bluesman, he introduced each song with a great story about why and how it came about. He painted a picture in each audience member’s mind as he prepared to deliver a masterpiece. Then he did just that. … With some luck, Doug MacLeod will return to Wichita again real soon. Then, you will have a second chance to hear this multi Blues Music Award winner in Wichita. I need to also mention that Doug is a fine guitar player too. If you do not own any of his CD’s, do yourself a huge favor and buy a couple.” —Randy Crump
