This Homeless Man’s Original Blues Song Will Move You. You Just Can’t Teach This Kind of Music…
By Michael Harrell
Doug Seegers is an out-of-work carpenter who busks occasionally in Nashville. You can’t teach the haunting voice, or the connection to the guitar, that classic southern blues. But you can learn a lot from his song: just where to go when you’re down, to the river, to be cleaned. Just wonderful.

A blogger by hobby and social media manager by trade, he continues to teach the faith to ninth graders when he's not busy watching movies or theatre.
