Doc Fingers

‍It ‍was ‍in ‍the ‍early ‍seventies, ‍during ‍a ‍stint ‍with ‍the ‍Ronnie ‍Hawkins ‍Band ‍in ‍Toronto, ‍Canada, ‍that ‍Bruce ‍Gallagher ‍acquired ‍that ‍handle.  ‍“They ‍initiated ‍me ‍as ‍a ‍Doctor ‍of ‍Fingerology ‍and ‍ever ‍since ‍then ‍I've ‍been ‍known ‍to ‍everyone ‍as ‍“DOC”

You ‍never ‍know ‍what ‍songs ‍DOC ‍will ‍pick ‍out ‍of ‍his ‍extensive ‍song-list ‍of ‍over ‍a ‍thousand ‍numbers ‍that ‍cover ‍a ‍70 ‍year ‍period ‍of ‍musical ‍history, ‍but ‍you ‍can ‍be ‍sure ‍that ‍it ‍will ‍be ‍different ‍every ‍night.
