Description

LionsBayHouseConcerts presents Wes Mackey: Southern Blues Guitar

Wes Mackey learned to play the guitar from the seasoned old blues players of the South where he was born and raised. At the urging of his father he eventually left “Big Estate” in rural South Carolina and moved to Augusta Georgia where his career really began. His first gig paid 50 cents and a chicken sandwich but soon he found himself working in bands that would back up touring artists including Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Reed, Stevie Wonder, … you get the idea. With more than 50 years in music he went from working the dusty honky tonks of Georgia to performing in five star venues, festival and concert stages around the world including places like Iceland, Russia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Europe and across North America.

For years he toured as a side man and the road finally brought him to Canada. It was a long and complicated journey but eventually he took front and center. Now, at age 75, he shows no sign of slowing down. We are deply honoured to have him as part of our LBHC "2019 Winter-2-Spring" Concert Series lineup.

Lions Bay House Concerts' Winter2Spring Series Lead Sponsor: Thyra McKilligan of Re/Max Masters has been a North Shore resident for over 25 years, but her specialty is Lions Bay.
