Mac began his musical career at 15 when Marianne Price of Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks convinced him to give up the ukulele and take up guitar. Three months later Mac was in Marianne’s band and hasn’t looked back since. With 6 CDs to his credit, Mac has played and toured with Johnny Winter, Roy Buchanan, and Danny Gatton who are among his many musical influences. He toured for 8 years with boogie woogie phenom Deanna Bogart performing at major jazz and blues festivals across Europe and the USA.
For much of his career, Mac has played a major supporting role for other songwriters both as a featured sideman and as an arranger/producer. He resides in Foley, Alabama where he is heavily involved in the Gulf Coast music scene and pursuing his other passion, wildlife photography. This is his 10th year at FBISF.
