After playing some 700 South African shows over the last eight years, Doc MacLean has got African dust in his blood. Shifting his heart into the southern hemisphere, the upcoming, mostly solo, JoJo Man Blues Tour brings real deal songs and stories to his largest and most diverse audience yet.

Telling songs and singing stories. This blues came from the Mississippi delta. But before that, it came from Africa. Passed down from mouth to mouth. More than music. A placement of the human spirit. Doc's early mentors were the grandchildren of slaves. And now: this continuing journey between the dreamscapes and the songlines: between the blurs of the Highway and the sounds of the wheels: The JoJo Man: naming unnamed roads: witching for water.

The JoJo Man Blues Tour– Doc MacLean's sixth African tour– will see him travelling over 20 thousand km by land before launching north for an epic, second tour leg: festivals and concerts across Ireland, UK and Europe. The 2023 version of the "World's Biggest Little Blues Tour" –comprising over 100 shows across 8 countries–will finish in western Canada in October.
