Michael Barclay

Recently, Michael backed Julian Lage, Norton Buffalo, Nick Gravenites, Sarah Baker, Stu Blank and others. Somewhat recently and notably he backed Bo Diddley. He produced the most recent recordings of the late Pattie Santos (It's a Beautiful Day) as well as recordings of Roger Volz (Soul Fuse). Michael was a featured performer at the Russian River Blues Festival, on opening day; and at The Sonoma County Blues Festival, where the band was received very enthusiastically - thanks to Bill Bowker. This summer (2017) Michael will play The Plumas County Fair and The Sierra Valley Blues Festival. Michael is working on new recordings on which he plays all the instruments, including keys, bass, guitar, and also horns (trumpet and trombone), as well as programming Stylus RMX Drum tracks. The new record is co-produced by Midge Gannon, who also co-wrote tunes. Other tracks of original blues tunes will include: Tommy Miles on drums, Gordon Wilson on lead and slide guitar, and Tom van Rossem on bass.

A nice review of the album, Blue Eyed Blues follows:

MuzikMan wrote a review - here's a bit of it:
Michael Barclay brings his Blue Eyed Blues to the table this year. He plays some mean guitar licks and sounds like the prototypical bluesman, and at times he is so expressive and heavy he sounds like the old black blues players. Barclay offers up 16 solid tracks of spicy and red-hot blues-rock, the kind that starts a fire that never goes out. I mean this does not let up for second on the entire recording.
