Zan McLeod

Zan McLeod's musical heritage began with his grandfather, Ed Stacy, who played Appalachian music on the banjo and mandolin. But, it wasn't until he heard The Beatles on Ed Sullivan that he knew where his first musical steps would lead him. Mr. McLeod started his music career playing in the style of the great southern rock bands of the early 70's. The blues rock synthesis of bands like the Allman Brothers and the Marshall Tucker Band influenced his style and compositions.
