Guitarist Doug Smith

Presented by Black Rose Acoustic Society at Black Forest Community Center

Acoustic guitarist Doug Smith is a Grammy Award winner and the 2006 winner of the prestigious Winfield International Fingerstyle Guitar Competition.

His playing has been heard on the big screen in the 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.”

Popular originals such as “Renewal” and “Order of Magnitude,” clever arrangements such as his medley of “Ave Maria/Can’t Help Falling in Love,” dazzling pieces like the tour-de-force “Stars and Stripes Forever” and his dynamic stage presence have dazzled audiences around the U.S and the world, including Japan, Taiwan and China.

Doug, along with 11 other great guitarists, picked up a Grammy Award in 2005, for the Henry Mancini tribute CD Pink Guitar, which won in the category of Best Pop Instrumental CD. 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.

Billboard Magazine writes, “Inviting melodies . . . stunning fingerpicking.”
