Our guest in the Mid-Week Coffee Break Podcast is singer/songwriter, Doug Adamz.
Dazzling guitar, scorching harmonica, brilliant songs, soulful singing and spellbinding stories; all delivered by Doug Adamz with insight and a terrific sense of humor. Between bawdy blues, tender ballads, exquisite instrumentals or hilarious story songs; the range of his writing and musical skill lends his shows an epic quality.
