"I would recommend him heartily and unreservedly!"

Ross Douglas is a gifted songwriter, powerful singer and a talented multi-instrumentalist — a delight to work with. …his singing style recalls the best Canadian folk singers (Stan Rogers, James Keelaghan, etc.). On one occasion he even wrote a very witty song — at extremely short notice — to commemorate the Rogue Folk Club’s Christmas Party. I would recommend him heartily and unreservedly for festivals, concerts, street performances, musical theatre, or just about anything else for that matter!

"I would hightly recommend him!"

A one man vaudevillian whirlwind, Ross Douglas is a consummate and versatile entertainer. His live show is always a crowd pleaser with astute songs that blend history, comedy, theatre, a variety of musical genres and a litany of instruments (from keyboards to mandolins and ukuleles). Energetic and heartfelt, Ross is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him for your festival or event.
