A master of musical multitasking
Whether playing in a group or solo, Doug Bell stays busy
Musician and songwriter Doug Bell, who comes to the Shalin Liu Performance Center this weekend as part of a duo of performances with the Jay Geils All Star Jazz & Blues Revue, has lost record deals, lost money, and could have lost his life to cancer. Yet at 64, Bell has never been busier - he’s got a new album of Americana, an album of ukulele songs, and a solo album in progress. “I feel like I’m 18,’’ says Bell.
