This area of Connecticut is home to some great musicians, like Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones who lives just up the road in Weston. It also is home to musicans who have opened for great acts.
One of them is local, Doug Allen, who will play guitar this Sunday, 7/25, at Weed Beach from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. Just like all Darien Summer Nights concerts on the beach, it’s free and no beach permit are required after 4:30 pm.
Doug has opened for the late John Entwhistle of the Who, Blue Osyter Cult, the Radiators and NRBQ just to name a few. This local journeyman has been playing with some of the best for over 10 years.
But one reason Doug is a local favorite to many of us is he passes on his talent to others. He has been teaching guitar locally for the past 5 years. He teaches the way he was taught, by playing your favorites songs from the first day.
Here’s Doug’s approach to guitar lessons. To hear some of his favorite songs, stop by Weed Beach this Sunday at 5:00 pm.
