Singing the blues will be the order of the day when Doug MacLeod performs at Backstage Café in Elizabethtown Friday night.

MacLeod, an acoustic blues singer-songwriter and storyteller, will hold a CD release party at 7:30 p.m. to herald his new album, The Utrecht Sessions. The album was recorded in Utrech, The Netherlands.

The performance comes on the heels of his nomination as Acoustic Artist of the Year by The Blues Foundation in Memphis, Tenn. The awards ceremony is 7 p.m. tonight.

In 2006, MacLeod received two Blues Music Awards nominations, which formerly were known as the W.C. Handy Awards. He received six W.C. Handy Awards before the name of the award was changed.

Backstage Café is located at 109 N. Mulberry St. For more information, call (270) 234-1686.
