Doug Seegers, aged 62, had been living and playing in the streets of Tennessee (USA) for more than 17 years.
That was pretty much all his life had been about until December 2012, when a young musician posted a video on YouTube and Facebook showing the homeless guitarist interpret a song written by him, entitled “Going down to the river”. The video you’ll see was filmed this year and it is an irrefutable proof of a totally unique voice.
His voice and his guitar were the only things that elongated this man’s problems and gave him confidence that all this is not a bad dream that will end at some point. Now, as then, his guitar is always his company, and his hands bring the most exquisite chords out of it.
This country music troubadour came to be known around the world. Now he participates in international festivals, where he sharesthe stage with big names of country music and rock’n’roll. His life took an unexpected turn due to the fact that someone noticed him and took the time to listen and believe him.
