About Doug

Whether he’s singing about catfish, pontificating on possums, extolling the virtues of dandelions, teling wild snake tales or wailing out a jivey harmonica tune, Doug will take you on an unforgettable cultural tour of North America’s back country.

Doug can show you how to make medicine out of common wild plants, how to properly harvest a persimmon and use its seed to forecast the winter. He can explain the virtues of poison ivy and what might happen to you if you eat it. He knows ancient plant lore, plant riddles, and even songs about weeds and berries.
