McDougall’s imagination often dwells in the very real places of his past, present, and the possible future. His songs might seat you by a coffee-can fire in the middle of a dry California river-bed, pull you up onto a freight train in the lush spring-time of the Northwest, raise your voice in hymn with family on a Thanksgiving afternoon, or hasten your good-bye to civilization, as you ramble on with all you possess on your back. Inspired by the word of God, family, friends, fellow workers and travelers met along the way, McDougall’s music carries on the tradition of oral history and folklore as a part of everyday life.
