Acoustic Guitarist Doug Smith is a Grammy Award Winner and an International Fingerstyle Guitar Champion, whose praises are sung by everyone from legendary fingerstyle master Alex De Grassi to film critic Leonard Maltin.
His playing has been heard on the big screen in the popular 2007 film August Rush and his original compositions are heard everywhere from NPR to TCM to Martha Stewart to Good Morning America. His playing combines folk, classical and jazz elements and has been called “a cross between Chet Atkins, Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges.”
Doug picked up a Grammy Award in 2005, along with 11 other great guitarists, for his contribution to the Henry Mancini tribute CD Pink Guitar, which won in the category of Best Pop Instrumental CD. By himself, he has a dozen CDs to his credit.
He has shared the stage with such guitar luminaries as Laurence Juber, Tommy Emmanuel, and Andy McKee, and is embarking on another tour of Japan and South Korea.
He is often joined by his wife, flutist/vocalist Judy Koch Smith
