Light of the World
Since 1984 Douglas Clegg has toured and performed as one of the most sought-after folk acts in New England. He plays six- and twelve-string guitars, fiddle, mandolin, accordion, and piano, and writes songs that Seattle's Victory Review calls 'focused, understandable, and universal -- highly recommended!' He now makes Santa Barbara his home, and continues to perform from coast to coast. Boston's WUMB Radio says Clegg is 'intense and sincere. His singing, especially, comes from so deep down; emotionally, it's very satisfying...he plays like lightning, sings like thunder.' The New Hampshire Sunday News says 'Clegg demonstrates a maturity of sound that comes only with time, both in the writing and the musicianship.' The Boston Globe call Clegg 'an adept multi-instrumentalist,' and his style 'just plain good music, performed well and without gimmicks.' Douglas Clegg recorded his first album, 'Fill My Thirst,' in 1987. The title song was recorded by Bill Staines. A 1989 finalist at the Kerrville Folk Festival songwriting competition, he has won numerous awards for his songwriting and fiddling.
