DOUGLAS W HARPER from West Virginia

Artist History

The first time they sang together, their voices united like two old friends. Since then, Doug and Shelley have performed throughout central Appalachia in a variety of venues. Some include NPR's MOUNTAIN STAGE, TAMARACK, THEATRE WV's MUSIC IN THE MOUNTAINS, Grandview National Park, DOUTHAT STATE PARK, Virginia, THE CLAY CENTER, Charleston, WV and THE POCAHONTAS COUNTY OPERA HOUSE, Marlinton, WV. Long time friend and accompanist, Dave Fondale joins them on bass.

“Hybrid Folk” is a term coined to describe Doug's writing style and play list. Audiences come away from performances warmed, amused and inspired. A gratified listener once commented, "I feel like I was just read to!"

Recording projects include SCRAPBOOK 2000, TRAVELOGUE 2002, SEASONS 2004 and KEEPSAKES 2007. Also, hear two cuts on THE ROAD HOME and one cut on THE ROAD HOME II. The Road Home CDs are compilations of songs by West Virginia songwriters and are produced by Ron Sowell, music director for West Virginia Public Radio’s Mountain Stage.

QUOTE FROM RON SOWELL
MUSIC DIRECTOR FOR NPR'S MOUNTAIN STAGE
"There is something familiar and comfortable about a Doug and Shelley Harper performance. Their relaxed style, smooth harmonies, down home charm and beautiful original songs both delight you and put you at ease. No matter how long they play, you want to hear one more song before they leave."
