Francis Doughty 06-23-06 on Us Folk
Francis Doughty is one of the first national guests to have played on the show. Francis stopped in on the front of June 23rd's show to play a set with his three guitars ( a 12 string and two 6 strings ) and lovely, assistant Laura Doughty, who just so happens to be a classical singer and wife..
So many times folks will point to a name of a great guitarist when telling you about an artist they say; has been compared to Leo Kotkee, John Fahey, or Ed Gerhard and how many times will they really Be There Francis IS there!
He started out the set with a 12 string piece that knocked our socks off ; his arrangement of Geoff Muldaur's Mole's Moon. It really set the tone for the show. He now is on the growing roster of Timberhead Music Artists a label founded by Maine artist Gordon Bok .
Fran says yes he is working on a new album but says no date is earmarked for a release yet so for now Among Trees (his first CD) OR his more recent Under the Sky will do rather well especially the later.
Today was Francis Doughty's third visit to the show.
