Guitar Mac Blues Express / Bio

Guitar Mac and His Blues Express

When you think of the blues, you think B.B. King, Muddy Watters……and of course, that guitar that speaks to you….that’s what it does. It’s that signature sound that identifies this style of music instantaneously. The guitar tells the story, as a second voice. This is the blues. This style of music is very deep, very emotional, full of dynamics and intensity.

Guitar Mac and His Blues Express is a member of this elite group. He is from Cotton Plant, Arkansas, but his music is pure Mississippi Delta Blues. He was introduced to playing the blues guitar at a very young age, learning the Delta style which is still alive and kicking in that region. He moved to the South Bay area in 1968 and settled in Sacramento, California. He has relentlessly pursued opportunities to perform and demonstrate this style of music to the masses. This drive takes him all over the world. He’s performed in Europe – all over France, Italy, England, Germany and Holland. In California he’s been playing his music since 1983 at the Sacramento Blues Festival.

He has 16 CD’s out on the worldwide market. I-Tunes.

He has also been graced with many prestigious awards, solidifying his mark in this industry.
