Douglas Craik is a well known name on the folk music circuit in Scotland. He has been singing and playing guitar since the 1960's when he played with some university friends in a group called Avizandum (a Scottish legal term meaning to procrastinate indefinitely).
Over the years he has performed in many folk clubs and small concerts and basically wherever anyone would let him! Douglas has a very tuneful voice and likes to sing his songs with feeling and emotion (not a dry-eye in the house). He is also very keen to promote the traditional songs of our dear friend Robert Burns and Douglas has organised and performed in a number of concerts based on this theme, the latest being 'Simply Burns'.
Douglas is the National Convener of the Traditional Music & Song Association of Scotland (TMSA). This has given him a new focus to support and promote traditional music in Scotland and in particular his local Perthshire.
