Doug Macrae

Doug Macrae honed his talent as a musician in various bluegrass circles and jam sessions before coming into his own as a songwriter. Taking heavy influence from great jam band guitar legends of the Woodstock era, he crafted a style that delivers a unique blend of passionate vocal phrasings and seasoned acoustic guitar picking.

Below are a couple of tracks from his new album entitled, A Time For Every Thing.




A track from his previous album entitled, Viaje En Cancion (Saint Augustine).

Cripe Original Guitar

The unique instrument pictured above and depicted in the oil painting by Jeff Gagliardi on the left, is a very special, custom built Steven Cripe Original Guitar. Designed and built for Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead in the early 1990's, the guitar became an one of a kind when it's creator, Steve Cripe, tragically passed away less than one year after the untimely death of Jerry Garcia.

Humbled by the special circumstances in which Doug Macrae received the guitar around 1996, he has only played the instrument at various performances throughout the years. Honored at a chance to share the beautiful tones of this masterful work of craftsmanship with the world, Doug finally recorded with the guitar on his latest release: A Time For Every Thing.
