Doug has studied and performed Cape Breton fiddle for most of his life, and has a true pride and passion for the traditional style of Scottish and Cape Breton fiddling, just like his Grandfather, Bill Lamey.
Bill was an extraordinary Cape Breton fiddler and contributor to the Scottish and Cape Breton heritage in the Boston area for over thirty-five years. He also recorded many 78's through the 1940's in Nova Scotia. Bill remains Doug's main musical influence; as he of course began playing the violin because of the admiration toward his Grandfather's playing.
Doug currently resides in Glendale, Nova Scotia with his family, playing his violin informally as well as performing on stage as much as possible.
