On a summer’s night with The Bristol doors open and the music drifting down Cuba Mall, listening to Dougal Speir’s Crying Shame Band is a great way to spend an evening. ‘Doog’ is a regular at the blues club. His blues playing is gutsy and rhythmic; his voice is soft and soulful.
Playing original songs and great blues covers, he’s got a talent for
pulling together top musicians. Dougal Speir– guitar and vocals; Dave Murphy– guitar and vocals, Roger Watkins– drums, George Barris– bass, Bob Smith-keyboards/ organ
