Doc Maclean

Contemporary delta blues and roots artist, storyteller, traveller.
Doc MacLean with Albert Frost CanAfrica Blues Tour
Opener: Henk Van Ginninken
Saturday, November 10, 2018
Ride shotgun on an epic, blues road tour as Doc MacLean and Albert Frost unite in a four wheel, continental drift. Mixing Delta with west Africa, Son House with Ali Farka Toura, electric with acoustic, new stories with old… This Canadian-African collaboration will surprise and delight as it rolls over nine Canadian provinces, coast to coast.
Doc MacLean and Albert Frost. One guy played with Son House, the other with Ali Farka Toure. So now now, CanAfrica Blues: a playful, yet respectful collaboration by these unique, yet complimentary artists – each of whom mix traditional and contemporary blues and roots music from their own continents.
On the ground, it’s an old school, vintage road adventure: the National Steel: jamming a big Lincoln across the continent, stopping in places large and small from coast to coast. “No venue too large, too small, too grand or too humble.” Songs and stories lived in the moment. Africa and North America in joy and sorrow. CanAfrica Blues. Named as one of the top sets at South Africa’s massive, 2017 OppiKoppi festival.

 Albert Frost

For the past two decades the energetic performances of SAMA award-winning blues/rock guitarist/singer Albert Frost has captivated audiences attention worldwide.
Dubbed the “South African Hendrix”, Frost deftly alternates between rhythm and lead, showcasing his extraordinary skills on acoustic and electric guitars. His first love is the Blues, stemming from the influence of his long relationship with the Blues Broers, a well-known and respected group from Cape Town with whom he performed from 1994 at the age of 17.
In 2000 Frost became one of the first Fender endorsees in South Africa and has been linked with the brand ever since.
He has recorded with Arno Carstens, Koos Kombuis, Chris Chameleon, Anton Goosen, David Kramer, Karen Zoid, Blues Broers and many others. He has performed with every major artist in South Africa as well as international artists like Ali Farka Touré and Finley Quaye. He has toured with Simple Minds and Rem, and supported the Rolling Stones. Albert has performed at legendary and exclusive international music festivals including Isle of Wight, Hard Rock Calling and OppiKoppi.
April 2016 saw the release of his much anticipated third solo album, The Wake Up, which, according to Frost, signals the “start of a new journey” for him. In a departure from Frost’s blues roots, The Wake Up explores various musical avenues and lyrical content to create something he says will surprise and excite his fans. The album won in the coveted Best Rock Album category at the 2017 SAMA Awards.
After a very successful 2017 Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees, Frost was nominated for a Kanna award as well as a kykNET-Fiëstas 2018 for the Best Music Production for the two shows: with Loki Rothman (The Acoustic Guitar) and with Zolani Mahola (Rok en Rol.) In December Albert Frost was also invited to perform with Henry Ate at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens opening for the Scottish band TEXAS.
His patent enjoyment of the music he performs and his instruments as well as his charming rapport with the audience, keeps his admirers captivated and returning for more.
