"Musically dazzling, foot-stomping, whooping, mind-blowing wonderment is the best way to describe the triumphant return of Brighton's Porchlight Smoker. A heady mix of quality music and a feelgood factor of 10 out of 10" - Newbury Weekly News review of ACE Space Theatre

"Water Into Sand is an absolute gem" - Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

"Really beautiful four-part harmonies. Lovely sound, really evocative, kind of puts me on the front porch back home in Tennessee. Can’t wait to hear more from them" - Baylen Leonard

"Their mash up of mainly American styles with a distinctly British undercurrent is very much their own. Multi-instrumentalists, soaring four-way harmonies, and a railroad-worn doghouse bass means that these boys are guaranteed to send you home with a smile on your face!" - Portsmouth News

"High-quality roots music that contains a blend of edgy country and British folk, played by a tremendously talented four piece band with excellent vocals and harmonies that few can match"  - American Roots UK

Doug Macleod's live performance preserves the traction of the blues as a story telling medium, expressed by his soulful voice and powerfully rhythmic acoustic guitar style.  He usually plays a National Delphi guitar (accompanied by his left foot), with stories or introductions between pieces.  The tales from his early performances when he felt that he did not have enough music to fill a show.  He became acquainted with the blues in St Louis in his teens and started his career playing country blues on acoustic guitar. Although predominantly associated with the acoustic guitar, his skills were developed as a blues bass player, and honed by his subsequent journeys into jazz and electric blues.

In association with the Crawley Blues Club
