From Blues to New Acoustic, World, Americana, and Folk, slide guitar specialist Doug Cox truly covers the waterfront. He has made music with artists ranging from the late iconic British Blues master Long John Baldry to India's musical royalty Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, African guitarist The Mighty Popo, Tibetan singer Jamyang Yeshi, and great songwriters like Chuck Brodsky and BettySoo, among others. Doug has released numerous solo albums since the early '90s, and his music has been featured in documentaries and feature films such as Terry Gilliam's "Tideland."
Doug Cox has played for ship sinkings in Victoria, BC (where they sink old ships for underwater diving adventures) and at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. He's busked on airplanes (back in the day when that was allowed!) and played for Prime Ministers. Doug was also the first featured Dobro player ever booked by the Montreal Jazz Festival, and the first Canadian invited to play Dobrofest in Trnava, Slovakia, where people gather each year to celebrate the instrument's inventor's birthplace.
