In his solo work, Canadian harpist and guitarist Nigel Mack is versatile, straightforward and unmannered; his lyrics confront sociopolitical issues like environmental devastation along with more conventional blues themes. Backed by an electric band, he should bring a welcome dose of class to a festival stage that’s all too often dedicated to blooze-and-barf frat boy excess.
Vancouver native Nigel Mack has been described as a “triple threat,” performing as a vocalist, guitarist and harp player. Mack is developing a growing reputation across the United States as an excellent slide guitarist who puts out some exceptional straight ahead blues with the feeling of bluesmen from the past. Mack puts deep feeling into his original songs. Nigel Mack’s talents as a blues musician and the hard work he has done to build his reputation in the blues world, logging over half a million miles across the US, make him a Mount Helena Music Festival “Must See”.
Recently during a set at Vancouver’s blues institution, the Yale Pub, the legendary James Cotton dropped in on blues man Nigel Mack. Initially refusing the encouragement from audience members to get up on stage and sit in with Mack’s Blues Attack band, Cotton eventually loosened up and helped propel the proceedings.

(Nigel Mack’s) new recognition is well deserved. Both his slide style and his harp work are refreshingly un-forced, and he struts his versatility on everything from Willie Cobb’s jaunty “You Don’t Love Me” to Elmore James’s searing “The Sky is Crying,” as well as his own hard-driving originals.
