Mac has got guitar chops up the wazoo, as we say, and he can sing an old ragtime hokum tune with a just the right bit of cheek and playfulness. Outside North Carolina it doesn't get much better than this!

This month's sound file: Homesick Mac's humble rendition of "Doc's Guitar" by Doc Watson
"Homesick Mac sings blues and traditional country tunes in a southern baritone as rich as molasses; his fingerpicking calls to mind Doc Watson, among others; and listening to Leaving, it is difficult to believe that he is a Yugoslav (now living in Sweden) who has never set foot in the US. But Mac has absorbed American musical idioms so well that he doesn't merely imitate Watson on "Deep River Blues," but takes the blueprint and runs with it. Exemplified by the title track, which could pass for a 70-year-old country blues standard, Mac's originals bespeak an artist contributing his own voice to the story and deserving greater recognition in the music's birthplace".
