Douglas is the premiere slide dobro player performing today. His playing can be found on myriad pop, country, folk and Bluegrass records. A professional musician since the age of sixteen, he has been sideman to (or belonged to) everyone from Ricky Skaggs to Emmylou Harris. His playing is limitless in terms of tone, technique and melodic invention. He is a dazzlingly fast picker, simulating the rolling sound of a Bluegrass banjo as well as the sliding, whining sound of a pedal steel guitar. He is also capable of great subtlety, able to lend pithy support to the prettiest songs. Douglas has also issued numerous records as a bandleader.
