2007 – Doug plays on-screen in “August Rush”

Doug is one of the guitarists who contributed to the soundtrack of the movie AUGUST RUSH, which opened Thanksgiving week 2007. Doug’s playing can be heard in “Dueling Guitars”, which is a guitar duet between actors Freddie Highmore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers late in the movie (Doug’s playing Freddie’s part). Doug can also be heard playing guitar in the Rhapsody which climaxes the movie. Yes, those are Doug’s hands you see on screen! (And if you look fast, you can see Doug sitting with the orchestra as actor Terrence Howard walks behind him.) This is an inspiring story of the power of music inspired by the late great Michael Hedges!
