The first time they sang together in 1980, their voices united like two old friends. Since then, Doug and Shelley have performed throughout central Appalachia in a variety of venues. Some include NPR's Mountain Stage, Tamarack, Theatre West Virginia's Music in the Mountains in Grandview National Park, Douthat State Park in Virginia, The Clay Center, Charleston, WV and The Pocahontas County Opera House in Marlinton, WV. Long time friend and accompanist, Dave Fondale joins them on bass.
Doug sums up his writing style and play list as “Hybrid Folk”, because of the variety of styles grafted onto folk roots. His insightful original songs are delivered with Shelley's smooth, silken harmonies, accompanied by uncluttered musicianship. Audiences come away from performances warmed, amused and inspired. One gratified listener commented, "I feel like I was just read to!"
Recording projects include SCRAPBOOK 2000, TRAVELOGUE 2002, SEASONS 2004 and KEEPSAKES 2007. Also, hear two cuts on THE ROAD HOME and one cut on THE ROAD HOME II. The Road Home CDs are compilations of West Virginia songwriters and are produced by Ron Sowell, music director for West Virginia Public Radio’s Mountain Stage.
There is no admission fee for any Sunday @ Two (2:00 p.m.) performance. Tickets are required due to limited seating and are available after 10 a.m. on the morning of the performance at the Information Desk.
