Welcome to the Wild Hog in the Woods Coffeehouse

Wild Hog Presents a Streamed Live Virtual Concert with

Some Guy Called Doug

Friday, October 16, 2020 at 7:30pm

photo of DougDouglas Hamilton is a writer and singer of quirky songs in the tradition of Tom Lehrer and Jake Thackray. From the sing-along catchiness of "Must Have Chocolate" to the unexpected philosophical insights of "Your Father's Underwear", Doug puts his finger on what's terrifyingly funny about our world and just keeps probing. He has a way of making you laugh AND making you think. In performance Doug moves between piano and guitar, and in one number he actually plays both at once! 

After living in Madison for 18 years, Doug moved to England in 2007, where he performed with the bluegrass band Appalachia and Old Time string band The Buffalo Gals, holding down the low end on stand-up bass. Now back in the states, Doug currently hails from the Twin Cities area.

Visit Doug's web site at someguycalleddoug.com where you will find links to his YouTube recordings.

Doug has no CDs for sale at ths time, but you can download some of his recorded tracks from Bandcamp and Reverbnation (including a couple from the old Higher Ground show on Wisconsin Public Radio).

Due to Covid, the Coffeehouse remains closed. This concert is online only. Watch this on your phone, tablet, or computer and take a break from your stay-at-home distancing while enjoying great folk music.
