Martin “Dougie” Douglas - president of CrossFire Steel Orchestra has passed

When Steel Talks extends our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Martin Douglas. He was the president of New York's CrossFire Steel Orchestra. In addition he was chairman of the United States Steelband Association.

Pan was Dougie's passion. You will be missed. When Steel Talks already misses the joy on your face every time you received your CrossFire panyard recordings from Basement.
