About Bob

Coming to a House Concert/Listening Venue near you!!

Bob MacLean is a folksinger/guitarist you need to hear... with roots in Cape Breton (Glace Bay) and Quebec, he's currently out with a new CD - East Coast/Canadiana songs along with some fingerstyle guitar licks...

A Story Teller...                             A Gifted Guitarist

A Song Interpreter                       An Engaging Performer

A Composer!                                Soulfully Musical

A Down-East Sound All His Own. 

Is he a guitar player that lies to sing?  Is he a singer that likes to throw in lots of tasty licks? 

Yes to both!

For most of Bob's vocal work, the guitar or mandolin are pretty much equal partners in what's happening - but NEVER detracting from the interpretation of the song. Whether it's a Beatle standard, a Nova Scotia classic or an Atlantic Canada gem, Bob's interpretation will be tasteful and all his own.  

Highlights:

* Founder of the Three-In-The-Round - The Single Malt Sessions concert series

* Musician In Residence - McDougall Cottage - 2012/13

* Waterloo Guitar Summit - Founder and Artistic DIrector

* Accompanist for Gillebride MacMillan - Gaelic Singer from South Uist, Scotland\

* Founder & Host - The Scran & Dram monthly ceilidh/session

* Fergus Scottish Festival - Performer - 2001 - present

* Four CD's to his credit

The one word to sum up Bob's playing would be "engaging".  Anyone who sees him playing, whether its a solo guitar number or a lively East Coast song, knows right away the engaging passion he brings to his craft.
