Open Mic via Zoom: Dennis Douglas

November 26, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Dennis Douglas, our Feature Performer this month, is known for his clear and warm tenor vocals and nylon acoustic arrangements on his vintage 1965 classical guitar, a Swedish “Tarrega” model (via Fender). His sets include originals in the Folk and singer-songwriter vein, as well as covers by Dylan, Arlo, Lightfoot and some relative unknowns. He loves living in the Hudson Valley (since 2002), with the diverse music and arts communities and the richness of the ridges, valleys, and rivers.

From about 1975 to 1990, Dennis was a freelance musician in NYC and pursued a career in a variety of settings that reflected his broad tastes. He played solo and duo gigs in the Village Folk clubs, sang on other writers’ demos, and did voice-overs and jingles. He was musical director of The First All-Children’s Theatre (First ACT), overseeing the creation of original musicals for children and teens. He also sang in a variety of early music ensembles, choirs, and choral groups, and was a co-founder of a 12-voice jazz group, Vocal Jazz, Inc.

After a second career as a technical writer and instructional designer in the software industry, Dennis returned to solo performing and songwriting. In 2022, he released Ferris Wheel, an album of his favorite originals, produced locally. You can hear all of the tracks at dennisdouglasmusic.com.
