Doug... how do I get hold of you ....We are cousins ...My dad was Allister MacLeod and we haven`t seen each other in about 68 years .....YEKS!!!..Long time Uncle Ballie and .Aunt Dorthy visited us on Moxham Drive in Sydney N.S. Granny and .Grampa MacLeod were alive then but most of the MacLeod family are passed now.. My Mom Harriet passed last year at 94 years. Allister passed In 1995.. I thought it would be nice to get in touch since there`s only about 4 original cousins (Brenda Boutilier(Annie`s girl) AnnMarie (my sister) George Lohnes( Aunt Bo`s Son ) and ME WARNA JEAN) alive...(Wayne Lohnes just passed last friday.) Would love to hear from U ... Take care and just discovered your music...Pretty dam good cous!!!! Love Warna Jean
Hi Warna Jean, My Goodness! I wasn't aware that any of my Canadian cousins were still around! I'm a little shocked over here to say the least. I get to Canada every once in a while. Mostly tho in Quebec. I'd love to come back to Nova Scotia one day. My wife ( of 35 years ) Patti Joy would love it too. Hopefully that will happen and soon! Thank you so much getting in touch!!!
Any dates/shows in So cal in July?..Im wanting to go ..im out near Palm SpringsDOUG MACLEOD responded on 07/02/2014 Next question
Hi, Dubb. Photos of you and your guitars seem to suggest you prefer 12-fret National guitars over 14-fret models. I'm considering a new National and would love to know if you actually do prefer one over the other and why, please. I'm left-handed and play mostly in open G with a slide and bare fingers. I'm looking for the clangiest, brashest tone I can get from a single-cone guitar. What models would you recommend? Thanks so much--and I hope you'll make it back to Little Rock someday! -- Steve T.DOUG MACLEOD responded on 07/31/2014
