Mac was born Dragan Ruzic - Macan in 1960 in Subotica, former Yugoslavia, now Serbia (check out the website of Mac's hometown). He has been playing the guitar since the age of 15. His love for blues and other forms of so called ”roots music” began when he heard the music of Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, as well as Doc Watson. Later, he discovered many other blues, folk and country greats.Homesick Mac has been conducting acoustic guitar workshops since 1995. At the 2002 Guitar Art Festival in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, he joined musical forces with Michael Hill (Michael Hill’s Blues Mob) from New York City in a combined acoustic/electric guitar workshop. In August 2003, Homesick Mac held the slide classes during the European Blues Association’s Blues Week at the University of Exeter in England; and he has been invited to return in the following three years.
