I’m super excited to announce that I’ll be doing a short string of shows in the northeast with Marisa Anderson! I discovered her record, The Golden Hour, at Mississippi Records in Portland, OR and it very quickly became one of my most played records of 2011. Her guitar playing and tone are so amazing. She is truly her own sound. All dates are below, please do come out if we’re hitting your town.
It’s no secret that I love North Carolina and I’m always excited for the chance to go there.
Next week is going to be awesome! I’ll be playing two shows (and one radio show) in NC with my friend John Harrison (from the band North Elementary) and one with Darius Rucker (ex-Hootie & The Blowfish) at the amazing Fillmore Charlotte. The show with Mr. Rucker is going to be filmed and broadcast on SpeedTV at a later date so even if you don’t live in the area, you’ll be able to check out the show! All show dates are below, if you’re in the area, definitely come out, I have a bunch of new songs to show you…
My and the band’s cameo was short and sweet last during the HBO 24-7: Jimmie Johnson – The Road to Daytona, but it was awesome all around. The show is amazing and gives some serious background into the awesomeness that is NASCAR and the Johnsons, two of the best people I’ve ever known.
If you have not already, please give to Haiti. $10 can go a long way.

I’m hitting the road solo in February! Just me, a guitar and some harmonicas in a car, thus the name of this tour “So Low, Solo”. I’m excited to get back out there. I’ll be playing some of towns that I played on the last tour with the band with a bunch of new ones thrown in. Check out the tours page for all dates and details!
I am adding dates all the time, so please check back often if you do not see your town listed. If you’d like to help get the word out in your town or book a show, please send an email to info (AT) dougkeith.com with what you’re thinking and we’ll be in touch. Looking forward to seeing you all in February!
