Around the Campfire

Tuesdays are full of surprises since I started the Blues campfire at Highway 61 BBQ. Last Tuesday I looked up at the doorway (which is right in front of the stage) and it was mostly filled by the legendary Big Dave McLean. Right behind him was Doc MacLean. They're one-third of the way through their cross-Canada "Century Tour" - playing over 100 dates. They were not looking the worse for wear - yet! It was a delight having them around the Campfire. Rita di Ghent and her partner Sam "The Shark" were also in the house, Rita getting right into it warming her hands over the ersatz campfire. There was also another McLean at the Campfire, Dan Mclean, who demonstrated his own unique take on some R&B classics.
