Doug originally had to postpone his 2020 UK&Ireland and Swiss Tour due to COVID-19 Pandemic, and we were all booked in for Spring 2021 BUT....sadly that was the 2nd time we've had to move.
But we're delighted that at the 3rd time of trying, Doug's now booked in for 3rd Sept 2022.
We're of course very excited to have our old friend 'Dubb', come over from Memphis TN and play his wonderful Troubadour style Acoustic Blues.
As St Kyneburgha church approaches its 900th year, it will provide a wonderful space for Doug's very personal style of blues, on his 9th visit to Shakedown since 2005 and first since 2014.
Congratulations to Doug, who is the 2020 Acoustic Blues Artist of the Year in the Blues Music Awards
...and previous Winner of 2018 Acoustic Blues album of the year for 'Break the chain'
"Doug MacLeod, now there's a man who can really play the blues.
- David Honeyboy Edwards, Delta Blues Legend
" One of the great blues artists... period! " - Jorma Kaukonen (Jefferson Airplane)
"...easily one of the most accomplished and admired acoustic bluesmen of his generation... this is an album that showcases MacLeod's captivating, talented artistry to the full."
- Iain Patience, Music News Nashville
"Doug MacLeod is an acoustic roots master. He has been using guitars and voice to create his own unique musical vision for over fifty years...
- Elwood Blues aka Dan Aykroyd, The Bluesmobile Radio Show
"Even if the powers that be discover how brilliant he is, and the O2 Arena or Jools Holland and TV beckon, I fervently hope that Dubb will never consider it beneath his dignity to play a gig in that little village hall in Castor from time to time to tell his stories to a rapt audience, being me, hanging off every word. I promise I will be there"
'Dr' Dick Cartmel May 2014
