Blues veterans join forces on tour

Veteran blues performers Doc MacLean and Morgan Davis are heading to Nanaimo on their national tour.

The two perform at Headliners, located at 165 Fraser St., on Saturday (Nov. 10) at 7:30 p.m.

The musicians named their tour the National Steel Blues Emergency Tour because they feel blues is “a healing art form.”

Davis has been performing for nearly four decades. The musician, originally from Detroit, grew up listening to a mix of rhythm and blues.

“He’s one of the greatest storyteller-entertainers, one of the best songwriters in the genre, one of the most respected musicians,” said MacLean, in a press release, about Davis.

MacLean has performed blues for more than 30 years. He was first known as an accompanist on harmonica and washboard and then as a guitarist and singer.

Tickets are $20 and are available at the door, by calling 250-753-2323 or at Harbour City Music.
