The West End Cultural Centre and UMFM present Big Dave McLean's Pocket Full of Nothin' Album Release

UMFM Presents

The first thing Big Dave McLean will tell you about Pock­et Full Of Noth­in’, his newest release on Black Hen Music, is that it isn’t a straight-ahead blues album. For, even though Dave has been play­ing the blues since he first heard John Ham­mond per­form at the Mari­posa Folk Fes­ti­val fifty years ago, he’s always been open to a vari­ety of musi­cal styles and approach­es to pre­sent­ing a song. As Dave puts it, Music is just music and when it’s good, you for­get about the genre or what­ev­er label you want to put on it, and just appre­ci­ate the beau­ty of what you’re hear­ing.’ Truer words were nev­er spo­ken. It doesn’t mat­ter if he’s play­ing coun­try, folk, rock, R&B or blues. It all sounds right and true when Big Dave sings it.
