“Understanding the importance of restraint to the blues, he skirts the predictable with fresh imagery in lyrics and his music is barb-wire sharp.” – Down Beat Magazine.
“Aside from being one of the finest guitar players in the business, MacLeod really connects with his audience. His sets are more than music. They are “homegrown lessons” in life and love. MacLeod is one of the finest songwriters, storytellers and performers in the blues. In a world intoxicated with electric-everything MacLeod is preserving a lost art… A must for any serious fan of the blues and any soul who needs the healing of the blues.” -Sing Out.
